Digital technologies have made possible new forms of storytelling, which are even more urgent in a rapidly changing social, economic and political landscape.

About

The Fourth Industrial Revolution may indeed have the potential to ‘robotize’ humanity and thus to deprive of our heart and soul. But as a complement to the best parts of human nature-creativity, empathy, stewardship - it can also lift humanity into a new collective and moral consciousness based on a shared sense of identity (Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum, 2016).

Digital technologies have made possible new forms of storytelling, which are even more urgent in a rapidly changing social, economic and political landscape. This exhibition demonstrates the polyvocal approach of filmmakers, photographers, fashion designers, gamers, sound designers, data visualizers, political activists and academics exploring the intersection between ‘creativity, empathy and stewardship’.

Exhibits include:

The Power of X (Mike Faulkner, Dfuse), a VR film exploring the impact of climate change and  veganism, taking inspiration from Eames Power of 10; Home after War (Nowhere Media), an interactive VR experience of an Iraqi father returns to Fallujah to face the threat of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), impressions from a new film about the Extinction Rebellion movement, as well as research projects by Dr Catherine Eliot, Dr Shreepali Patel, Dr Fabrizio Galeazzi, Dr Claudia Schneider, Dr Senir Dinar.
