Will the Future Design Us? Man is limited in observations, what happens in a world when these can be manipulated? Do we need an update in perceptions, do we need exoskeletons and other digital plugins? Are digital observation systems more absolute? In a society with Nervous Systems, our behaviour is predicted and affected. How do we regain control on our devices and systems? Will the Future Design Us or can We Design the Future?
Manifestations will take place Oct 22-30 during the Dutch Design Week, more info:



Manifestations 2017 presents Oct 21-29 the largest TECH event (4500m2) of the Dutch Design Week.. with a feminine touch 🙂  Veemgebouw, Strijp-S, Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

Manifestations, the festival that shows the future x years ahead, wonders: Will the Future Design Us?   A festival with cyberpunk, privacy,  innovation, digital and transdisciplinairy art and creativity for all ages. Manifestation is a production of ViolaVirus, MAD emergent art centre and Hyperspace Collective.

Manifestations – Things you’ve never seen before and will never forget.
Control robots using your brain! Experience the newest Virtual Reality and Virtual Intimacy, Museum of the Future, Smart indoctrinations, Fly to the Moon, Culture of Fear and Terror, Cutivism, Wheelchairs with VR, it’s all here at Manifestations!  Technology influences us all, but what role do we want technology to have? Is this different for a woman, a child or a white man? What is a healthy development of technology? Profit-driven, innovation-driven, or human-driven? Manifestations wants to Design the Future Together, before the Future Design Us.
