Designing the Living
The very notion of "alive" can be found throughout in the physical field of matter as much as in the intangible digital field, as in prominent artistic disciplines. Bio-, neuro-, become the most frequent prefixes to signal the instability of the living. The new exhibition in the "Mutations/Creations" program traces the archeology of the living and presents the most significant creations and innovations in the fields of art, design, architecture, and music; in particular with the sonic and furtive Biotope imagined by Jean-Luc Hervé. This exhibition, with its evolving material, plays with growth and degeneration and gathers 40 young artists and lab projects.
