The Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of Media Art exhibition expresses the disconcerting and delightful world of the digital age. Both playful and challenging, each artwork asks audiences to immerse their senses into a ‘thinking’, ‘feeling’ and ‘doing’ contemplation of what it is to be human in the digital age of technological acceleration.
Biologist EO Wilson believes ‘the real problem of humanity is the following: we have Palaeolithic emotions; medieval institutions; and god-like technology’.
Curated by Jonathan Parsons and Lubi Thomas, Experimenta Make Sense features over 20 leading international and Australian artists who engage directly with this conundrum.
