Venice, machines and connecting with nature

The museum mixers will be given a mission for each of ArtLab‘s three pavilions. For the Montreux Jazz Café, their task will be to make the equipment for listening, browsing and viewing the festival’s archives more interactive and dynamic. In the Art and Sciences Pavilion, which will house an exhibition on interactions between humans and machines, the question of who is really in control will be explored. And in DataSquare, which holds the archives of the city of Venice and a project on modeling the brain, the participants will consider whether the truth is to be found elsewhere.

The mixers will also take over Place Cosandey, the outdoor space between the ArtLab building and the Rolex Learning Center. They will be given the challenge of making the square more vibrant and connecting people with nature. Finally, a unifying theme – data waves – will link the four spaces.
