RADICAL ATOMS – IMPACT AND EXPECTATIONS

Taking work done by MIT’s Tangible Media Group and the Ars Electronica Futurelab as the point of departure, this part of the symposium will deal with how the evolution of Radical Atoms will be felt in various occupations, economic sectors and, by no means least of all, our everyday life. What impact will these new dynamic materials have on creative disciplines like art and architecture? What are the future prospects in robotic design? Will we someday encounter drones as airborne Radical Atoms? What happens when new materials are amalgamated with human DNA? And how will we, the users, be able to find our way in the dynamic techno-world of tomorrow? International pioneers and the Ars Electronica Futurelab’s expert staff gaze into a future of and with Radical Atoms.
