Join the Artificial Womb Workshop

NNN is currently researching the concept, societal impact and challenges of the artificial womb. The goal of this project is to develop thought-provoking scenarios that facilitate a much-needed discussion on the way technology radically alters our attitude towards reproduction, gender, relationships and love in the 21st century. 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.

NANO Supermarket Indoor at Teylers Museum

Today the first and oldest Dutch museum, the Teylers Museum in Haarlem, opens a new wing: the Lorentz Lab. This laboratory once belonged to Hendrik Antoon Lorentz, a scientist best known for winning the Nobel Prize in Physics with Pieter Zeeman for the discovery of the Zeeman effect and for laying the foundation for the special relativity theory of Albert Einstein. Tonight from 19.30 to 22.30, the Lorentz Lab, the lab from the past, meets the NANO Supermarket, the lab from the future. Come visit us to taste and test the NANO Supermarket products and experience the impact of nanotechnology on everyday life.

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.
