"Art Fiction – The Speculative Future of Art, Music & Technology" talk by Moritz Simon Geist. Hosted by Peter Kirn and Ioann Maria.

Moritz Simon Geist throws all predictions on “market development” and “consumer behaviour” overboard and enters the speculative domain of “Art Fiction”.

In his 30-minute talk, he presents absurd devices-of-the-future and imaginary products for the yet unknown needs of our future self. This happens in the cross section of society and art - for a world in which brain interfaces, body enhancement and nanorobots (finally!) have become everyday items.

Without concern for feasibility and usability, an unbiased and critical view of current techniques and technolgical tendencies is formed.

 


Presented with Native Instruments and SHAPE, which is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
