Experimenta Speak to Me – Art Exhibition

344 Swanston Street, Melbourne

The exhibition Speak To Me questions how people communicate and connect with each other at this time. In a rapidly changing technological field, how do you now consider these new relationships to the world, technology and each other? What does this connectedness offer you?

Including artificial materials and dissected electronics to create interactive, organic living environments and sculptures, this unique experience includes a sensory light and sound installation which reacts to the human body, a demonstration by Japanese master roboticist Hiroshi Ishiguro showcasing an empathetic robot that mimics human movement and much more.
