Digital Dreams

Interactive Exhibition

What will our digi­tal future look like?

The exhi­bi­tion Digi­tal Dreams explo­res current topics of the digi­tal future of infor­ma­tion, social inter­ac­tion and enter­tain­ment in a expe­ri­men­tal and play­ful way. How blur the lines between digi­tal and physi­cal world in our social envi­ron­ment? Which impact have digi­tal infor­ma­tion filters to us? At the exhi­bi­tion the visi­tors get to parti­ci­pate and try new tech­no­lo­gies like augmen­ted and virtual reality and learn about the future and its multi­fa­ce­ted possi­bi­li­ties.

SOCIAL MEDIA: We got used to like, comment and share constantly online. How does this beha­viour they trans­fer back into the physi­cal realm?

MARKTHALLE: Markt­halle used to be a source of food and nourish­ment in it’s former days. Which possi­bi­li­ties could be offe­red in the future?

FILTER BUBBLE: Algo­rithms decide what content is rele­vant for us. This leads to perso­na­li­zed search results and tailor-made online expe­ri­en­ces. Infor­ma­tion that does not match your view is filte­red out.

VIRTUAL REALITY: Our enter­tain­ment will change, too. Event today virtual reality gives an impres­sion how this could be in the future.

AUGMENTED INFORMATION: Digi­ta­li­za­tion and new tech­no­lo­gies enable the avai­la­bi­lity of infor­ma­tion ever­y­time and ever­y­where. Even our shop­ping beha­viour can change with augmen­ted reality.

DIGITAL DREAMS: How do your digi­tal dreams or night­ma­res look like? What do you wish for from digi­ta­li­za­tion in the future and what does scare you?
