Design between Human and Machine

This groundbreaking exhibition investigates the science and fiction of robots and looks at how they are changing the world we live in. Join us to explore how robots impact our lives, from fashion to architecture, and how design in turn is changing robotics.

Posing a series of provocative questions, the show will explore how popular culture has shaped our perception of robots and artificial humans, the impact this technology has had on industry and the increasing blurring of the boundaries between human and machine.
