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.
