Technosphere

2015—2019

Research Project

The dilemma of global technology and its identity was the main theme of Technosphere. From 2015 to 2019 the explorative research project hosted four public events to spur conversations among scientists, artists, and the general public to explore the origins and future itineraries of the technosphere.
