SEEINGWHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?
Is vision just one way to see? How do our brains interpret what’s in front of our eyes? How do machines understand what they’re looking at, and will they change how we look at the world?

Field TestRADICAL ADVENTURES IN FUTURE FARMING

LifeloggingDo you count?
From critical to creative, LIFELOGGING asks ‘where do we go from here’ and question whether we can record and analyse happiness, beauty and aesthetics the same way we record footsteps and heartbeats. This exhibition will explore novel methods for capturing data, for visualising, and for analysing the insights that new data affords us about ourselves and society.

BLOODNOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED
Our human preoccupation with blood runs deep, and as a species we’ve had plenty of time to prod and poke, paint and proselytise about blood. So what remains? What mystery persists about blood, and how does this exhibition probe it? Why are we still interested in blood?

STRANGE WEATHERFORECASTS FROM THE FUTURE
We are obsessed with the weather. It is a powerful, shared daily experience, offering us an immediate talking point with which to engage our fellow citizens. Yet when we talk about climate change the sense of guilt or powerlessness is enough to kill the conversation. By engaging both weather and climate in a playful, provocative way, we hope to leapfrog over current polarised public debates.
