DESCRIPTION

Who hasn’t dreamed of a wheel that would take them around the world without having to leave their apartment? Or of a digital app that downloads fresh bread to the table every morning? Or of finally finding out what really goes on behind the screen?

 This interactive transmedia exhibition focuses on our relationship with new technologies, and on how they are taking over our privacy and becoming more or less omnipresent in daily life.

 Ultra-sophisticated appliances are resulting in a new generation of hyper-functional households, where the inhabitants’ slightest desire is brought to life – even those that have never been put into words.

 This exhibition - a treasure of astonishing appliances, innovative digital applications and interactive installations – puts another spin on this new, barely discernible “assisted living” and invites visitors to examine the new life styles that we are unconsciously starting to embrace.

The house automation catalogue is the starting point for brainstorming amongst the artists brought together for this exhibition. Drawn entirely in “clear line” style by Vincent Broquaire with editing and layout by Julia Coffre, the catalogue proposes a series of ultra-technological devices for the main rooms of the home.
