You are guided through your galactical journey by an artificial intelligence, called A.L.A.N.N (Algorithmic Artificial Neutral Network). The mission is to observe humans, objects, items, and stories from the perspective of both science and science fiction and deeply analyse how the two fields have impacted human lives on Earth and figure out what future may hold for our species.

Throughout the journey, the exhibition is seeking answers to ‘what if?’ questions and presents visions by digital artists on how they imagine our world could look like in the near or far future. Us humans, will we be wise enough to make the right decisions to fight against climate change and other catastrophes or will we face a dark future?

There are lots of different scenarios leading to different outcomes. It is impossible to tell where our future will take us. Humanity has the power to either save or destroy their planet. Our future lays in our hands.
