The project has been presented in a series of public talks and online publications.
Sander Veenhof is a hands-on futurist who creates interactive experiences to explore scenarios for a speculative but highly probable future. By staging events in a parallel reality that can be accessed with AR or VR viewers, his projects reflect on our gradual transformation into cyborgs living in an interconnected world of material, data and last but not least: people.

His output includes installations, live performances and fixed-media pieces.
TMTMTM is an association for production, research and technological experimentation . It develops projects that use digital manufacturing or information technologies, and organises education and knowledge sharing activities, meetings and activities about technological production processes from a critical and multidisciplinary perspective. As one of the collectives in residence in Hangar , it provides mentoring to other initiatives and creators and develops several collaborations for the production of artistic projects.
Vanessa Santos is a digital media artist and researcher.
