Reviewing the promise of technological determinism.
What fulfils our world? Technology? Aesthetics? The industry rushes forth, developing new technologies that we are accordingly expected to acquire. Designers make these nice, as even iPod’s are gentle to our senses. Despite all of this: what do we really need? Beauty… technological extensions of our body… what do we need? Onomatopee invited three theoreticians to reconsider these questions. In the context of the Dutch Design Week, they will use the Onomatopee project space as their study. In here, they and the visitors brainstormed and developed ideas on these topics.
