The program investigates the blurring borders between synthetic and organic, sense and perception, human and machine. By focusing on sensory perception, we get closer to the essence of what it means to be human, while investigating the future of our technologically mediated body.
Homo Sensorium takes place during Dutch Design Week in Natlab, a collaboration initiated by Baltan Laboratories with Broet and Natlab. The program presents a mix of experiments, workshops, talks, dinners, performances, guided tours, a brainwave wedding lab and a film program.
Immerse yourself in a multi-sensory tour based on the industrial heritage of Strijp-S with the Cosmic Travel Kit. Get test married in a high tech wedding ritual and create your own 3D printed wedding rings in the Brainwave Wedding Lab. Listen to a piano concert and experience music in its most essential way with Piano in the Dark. Create a new physical way to re-connect with nature through sensorial wearables by joining the Facing Nature Workshop. These and other experiences will be triggering your senses during the Dutch Design Week.
Homo Sensorium at DDW is part of a multi-year trajectory developed by Baltan Laboratories and kindly supported by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, Stichting Cultuur Eindhoven and Provincie Noord-Brabant.
