Workshop: High Impact – Low Tech

Track: Designing High & Low
Date: Day 1 – 14:30
Location: Neufert-Mansion, Gelmeroda
Language: German

Bruce Mau’s question “Now that we can do anything, what will we do?” (from “Massive Change”) is the starting point of an inspiring lecture on emerging materials, (bio)design and digital technologies allowing mankind to cross the boundaries of geography, production and perception.
In finding our way to a more sustainable transition, we take a closer look at the intersection of art and science. Aart and Paula believe that artists and designers can and should play a more important role as agents of change by adding the necessary “why” to the what and how of technological progress. High-impact projects and low-tech solutions is what their lecture is all about.
With a suitcase of materials and objects from their collection, they will add the necessary look and feel to understand and experience the substance that will define our future.
