The Technologist vs the Layman

The Technologist vs the Layman

Whenever we talk about the future, the talk turns to technology, and vice versa. And it is a polarising subject: techno-utopians believe technology is the panacea to solve every problem in the world, critics foresee dystopian future scenarios in which essential human properties and values are lost. This installation is a visualisation of the imbalance and an invitation to bring technologists and laymen closer together. If we want to imagine the future collectively, and want to shape it democratically, the two should be able to see eye to eye.
