During two evenings, on June 18 and 25 2015, perspectives from biology were used to create a better understanding of technological development. The ultimate goal was to find a fruitful (design) perspective in dealing with technological developments in the Anthropocene - the geological era in which man has become the main force of nature.

During this event, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez and Filip Visnjic took the audience on an exploration of the contemporary culture of algorithms, and showed how so-called 'learning algorithms' play a growing role in our life.

In the context of the 34th World Expo opening in Milan in the spring of 2015, Het Nieuwe Instituut addressed this phenomenon from different perspectives, between April 26 and August 23, in three exhibitions: What is the Netherlands, Garden of Machines and GLASS. The recurring question in the programme Innovation at the World Expo was: under what conditions is innovation achieved, and what role do designers play within that process?

This project is part of the programme track Annual themes and the folder World Expo.

The exhibition GLASS does not only show the evolution of the oldest man-made material, but also how glass has been an engine of progress for centuries.
