3 quotes from the curator´s statement >
"Almost nothing on this planet has been left untouched by humankind and its actions. Sometimes as a side effect, but often as a conscious interference from trying to sculpt the world according to our dreams and fears. Mastering and designing all aspects of life is closely related to the development of science and technology. New technologies have become tools for trying to change nature from its unpredictable and uncontrollable state, into the opposite, a predictable and controllable planet of 'perfection'."
"The experiences we've made from these experiments has taught us that the processes that sustain and shape our lives cannot be controlled top down: they work bottom up, continuously becoming more complex. Even modest activities on a micro scale interacts and coalesce into the macro systems governing our tangible world."
"This explorative playfulness is characterized by hybridity and cross-fertilization that as a result constitute qualitative factors for creating and understanding interactivity in its widest sense. The need to understand how humans and objects interact with one another (and thus recreate each other) is critical with regards to the dire issues of our age."
