On September 4th we were honored to welcome the co-founder of the cyberpunk genre, Bruce Sterling, to our Immersive Showroom. His exciting talk about Posthumansim was the introduction of this year’s Test Lab of the ArtCenter College for Design in Pasadena, California. Together with Nik Hafermaas, Executive Director ArtCenter Berlin Programs, he welcomed the students from Pasadena to Berlin and presented the 3-month project Berlin 2033.
With the presentation on our 270° screen, the students could literally immerse themselves into the topic. We are already excited about the results of the design teams and looking forward to their future ideas. The presentations of the results will be held on 21 November, specially adapted to our screen format. But before that, they will for the first time conduct a creative dialogue, a collaborative creative, with their team colleagues in Pasadena on 19 October in our showroom. Doing so both cities will experience the future of meetings as if they were actually in one room – in our Immersive Showroom Berlin.
