Intimate Technology Evening at Droog

NextNature.net
April 22nd 2015

Wearable devices, such as the upcoming Apple Watch, show how the border between human and machine is gradually fading. Technology is increasingly placing itself in us and between us, is mimicking our behavior and gathering information about us. As we allow technology into our private world, our relationship with it becomes more and more intimate. To what extent will we tolerate this? How do we design intimate technology?

Next Thursday, April 23, in Amsterdam, Droog Foundation will host designer Maria Verstappen from Driessens & Verstappen, Next Nature Network art director Hendrik-Jan Grievink (who will present a speculative intimate device that might be on the market in ten years) and researcher Marjolijn Heerings from Rathenau Institute, to reflect on intimate design and intimate technology. Next Nature Network head Koert van Mensvoort will lead the conversation.

Droog Foundation and Next Nature Network gladly invites you to come, listen and join the conversation! Find more info here.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
