Technology moves the world forward and shapes new dimensions. For many years, technicians, artists, and designers led the way towards more liveable conditions by offering solutions to challenges that derive from increasing urban environments. This search brought transparency on resources and tailored products and services. Yet boundaries are to be explored. In our lifespan, the physical world will interact with human and nature like never before. The future is ‘smart’, potential gets ‘unfolded’.

“Smart Unfolded” presents installations and artificial organisms from acclaimed international innovators in a playful way. Works range from light objects to collaborative instruments, and from biofeedback to living scale models.

By “unfolding” we create possibilities. The mixture of art and technology is not only an approach of creation, but also a tool to discuss our world’s development. When we reach out to the unknown, we embrace life and future.
