Waag Open: 200 years later (Sold out)
This event has sold out.
Imagine it is somewhere 200 years in the future, after climate change has changed the world beyond recognition, Symbiosis takes place. This post-human biotope might be rich and teaming with new artificial or enhanced biochemical life: new genetically altered life forms, (chemical) robots, hybrid technologies, and/or autonomous intelligent systems. They are all sharing resources, habitats, bodies and information in an inclusive way on the premise of: Symbiosis.
Come to Waag Open and discover one of the many possible futures with the interactive VR installation 'Symbiosis', designed and produced by Polymorf in collaboration with Studio Biarritz.
Symbiosis is a performative, multiuser and multisensory VR installation in which the human body will be redesigned. It allows every participant to embody a post-human or even nonhuman reality: a completely symbiotic human-animal or human-technologic relationship.
Symbiosis has been nominated for the S+T+ARTS Prize 2022. S+T+ARTS Prize has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 956603.
