In times of fundamental change, this mixture of installation and generated
process evokes desire for certain kind of futures. Residing in this future and looking back at our present shows us clearly
how crafting a more tangible future for ourselves is possible if we initiate change today.
We present an "experiential
future", a walk-through story set in an immersive sur-rounding, a stimulation for all of the senses. Possible futures are
explored in a real-life setting, in the here and now with curiosity and playfulness. Possible futures evoke the passion to
boldly popularize the complexity of our time. Possible futures are being demystified and are no longer feel terrifying. As
people from our past had understood it: "Change was the only chance".
