Science and technology are changing our lives. They are transforming our minds, our possessions and the landscapes we inhabit. In which directions are they heading? What kinds of societies, cities, homes – even people – will they lead to? Are these the futures that we want?
On March 1–3, 2012, Arizona State University hosted Emerge, a campus-wide event that united artists, engineers, bioscientists, social scientists, story-tellers and designers to build, draw, write and play with the future. This interactive exhibition at the ASU Art Museum offers Emerge’s discoveries and creations, giving you an opportunity to get a taste of the futures discussed.
Join us for the opening reception Tuesday, April 17, from 5-8 p.m., sponsored by the ASU Global Institute of Sustainability. Free and open to the public.
