Experimenta Make Sense is an exhibition that expresses the disconcerting and delightful world of the digital age. What does it mean to feel in an era of disembodied communication? To think in a world of algorithms, and artificial minds? What does it mean to ‘do’ today?


Both playful and challenging, this exhibition asks audiences to immerse their sense into a thinking, feeling and doing contemplation of what it is to be human in the age of technological acceleration. 


Biologist E.O. Wilson believes that "the real problem of humanity is the following: we have paleolithic emotions; medieval institutions; and god-like technology." Experimenta Make Sense presents a program of over 20 leading international and Australian Artists who engage directly with this conundrum.
