Natural Habitat

What happens if art and nature and technology 
come together? Are new worlds created? Is the 
distinction between nature and technology still 
visible, or do the two increasingly merge with one another?

In the Natural Habitat project artists are 
working at the interface of nature and 
technology. Here they investigate the extent to 
which nature and technology complement each 
other, and show possitive ideas of a new nature. 
In Natural Habitat the boundaries between nature, 
culture and technology become increasingly 
blurred. The project consists of an exhibition 
Natural Habitat, from November 4 untill December 
16 (opening November 4, 15.00 hour) and a seminar 
Art and Science in their Natural Habitat on 
Saturday November 11 from 13.00 - 17.30 hour.
