In the last decade we have witnessed a disruptive change in information technology from the work desk into the everyday. This has not only deeply influenced the way we communicate, but at its very end has a strong impact on the condicio humana. The borders between the physical and virtual blurs and soon they become indistinguishable from each other. Dreamlands are generated by algorithms based on pre-assumptions and data traces we leave in the cloud. Reality, as we know it, will never be the same again. But instead of sketching a technological driven utopia or dystopia we want to invite you onto a journey of nearly infinitive possibilities by sharing our research in the Smart Space Center at the department of Digital Media at Furtwangen University.
What the future will bring we don’t know. What future we–as human beings–really want to live in is up to us. Let’s shape this future together.
