TransNatural theme
The most brilliant role that 'Technology' played was his way to escape
the restrictions of Nature. Nonetheless, Technology also liked to play
the role of the stupid, crude brother of 'Nature' constantly
destroying Natures' toys with his clumsy dirty knuckles.

It is high time to get used to the idea that together technology and
nature form a new, less dysfunctional family whose family name has not
yet been established. The 21st century is the century where technology
and nature have finally become viable children who in turn have
children of their own.

Does this mean an evolutionary progress or above all, a changing
perception about ourselves? Is this the end of the huge detour to the
conclusion that the distinction between nature and technology never
really existed? In transNatural we demonstrate the most interesting
attempts in art, design and science to this new reality merged to a
level of experience that helps us find a space to live in this new
merged world.
