What influence do immersive technologies, such as augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR), have on our self-perception? How does artificial intelligence (AI) change our individual behaviour and that of entire societies? How does the advancing digitalization affect the creative industry, and what potential does it derive for its subdisciplines?
Under the subtitle «New Realities: Design - Arts - Technology», the interdisciplinary exhibition «REFRESH X Fantoche» and it's public programme present selected projects dedicated to the themes of «Immersive Journalism», «Immersive Play», «Digital Identities», and «Digital Doubles». Through films, games, VR experiences and innovative technical experiments, «REFRESH X Fantoche» reflects the zeitgeist, questions the role of designers and artists in an increasingly digitalized world, and discusses possibilities for binding ethics in dealing with the flood of available data.
