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.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
