Want to know more? Join the Artificial Womb workshop at Border Sessions, on June 28 in The Hague, to build new narratives around assisted reproductive technologies, explore new cultures and craft your own piece of design fiction.

Pyramid of Technology at WDCD 2017

Every human being has to cope with technological change, yet few of us are aware of how new technologies are introduced, accepted and discarded in our society. The Pyramid of Technology visualizes how technology becomes nature in seven steps and what we can learn from that. It helps us to dream, build and live in our next nature – the nature caused by humans. Join us tomorrow for the launch of the project at What Design Can Do in Amsterdam, to explore our life through the lens of the Pyramid of Technology.

WiFi Angels at Telemagic in Rotterdam

Imagine you can hear WiFi, every area would have its own soundscape. Streets, parks, subways, hotels, highways; they all sound different. WiFi radiation is everywhere, yet invisible to our human senses. The WiFi Angels app lets you sense electromagnetic radiations by turning the WiFi networks that surround you into a celestial choir. On the 21st of April at 21:00, our angels will guide you to the Telemagic paranormal tech fair in Worm, Rotterdam. The exhibition showcases 25 stands of spiritual healing for the technological body. Get ready for a discourse of consciousness in cyberspace. Next time you search for WiFi, just follow the angels!
