Milan Salone 2015 – Dutch Invertuals is presenting Body Language, an exhibition exploring the way we will interact with objects in an increasingly virtual reality.
‘Generations to come will refer to the past as primitive,’ says curator Wendy Plomp. Through the exhibition she wanted to offer a glimpse into the future of our everyday environments, where technology will work seamlessly and in tune with our bodies, and physical objects will increasingly exist as mere representations of their virtual functions. The projects on display show the potential of using light as a building material, creating a more emotional interaction with objects and environments through biofeedback, and our relationship with physical objects in a virtual-first reality.
