HUMAN+ The Future of Our Species
Date: Opens May 20, 2017
Venue: ArtScience Museum (Marina Bay Sands)
HUMAN+ The Future of Our Species, ArtScience Museum’s new cutting-edge exhibition, explores the possible future paths of our species. It asks what it means to be human in a world of artificial intelligence, lifelike robots and genetic modification. It probes the social, ethical and environmental questions raised by using technology to modify ourselves. Will virtual reality be the new reality? What would happen if a robot knew what we wanted before we knew ourselves? How might we modify ourselves to adapt to an environment that we are drastically transforming? Is longevity a noble aspiration or a terrible threat for the planet? In the future, who will have ownership of our genetic information?
Showcasing works by international artists, scientists, technologists and designers, HUMAN+ presents a future world where the lines between fiction and reality are blurred and shows how our perception of humanity is being transformed by science and technology.Present your ICRA 2017 badge at the museum box office to enjoy a discounted ticket price to HUMAN+ The Future of Our Species at SGD 12 per ticket for Adult only (usual price SGD 17). Promotion valid from May 20 to June 18, 2017.
