We are excited to announce that Captain Chronomek will be featured in a new exhibition on Design Fictions that is taking place at the “Emerge: Artists + Scientists Redesign the Future” conference at Arizona State University. Captain Chronomek is one of four featured design fictions alongside such superstars as Boilerplate, Henry Hoke and the Instititute of Backyard Studies, and Adiel Fernandez (aka Adiel Angel). We will all be part of an exhibition sponsored by Intel entitled “Powered by Fiction: Artists, Makers, Tinkerers and the Backstories that Inspire Them to Create”.
The Emerge conference promises to be a wild ride! From the website:
“What it means to be human is changing. Emerging technologies are transforming our minds, our relationships, everything we own and the very landscapes in which we live. What kinds of humans will we become? What kinds of humans should we become?
These singular questions will be explored on March 1–3, 2012, when Arizona State University hosts Emerge–an unparalleled campus–wide event uniting artists, engineers, bio scientists, social scientists, story–tellers and designers to build, draw, write and rethink the future of the human species and the environments that we share. And then we’ll celebrate. Arizona State University, the nations’s largest university, is determined to break down the barriers between those making the future and those thinking about what it all means.
