STRP Biƫnnale 2017

Event Details

  • STRP Biënnale emboldens creative technology for the inquisitive guest. In it’s ten year existence, STRP has exhibited enthralling installations, experimental performances, pioneering music and strong voices. In the immense space that is the old Philips Klokgebouw, the ten-day festival will bring the future to the here and now.


    The theme of the 2017 STRP Biënnale is ‘Senses and Sensors’, which is all about perception. The way we perceive ourselves and the world around us and the many ways in which technology alters perception and stretches its boundaries.


    According to Kevin Kelly’s newest book The Inevitable (2016), interacting is one of twelve inevitable technological developments which shape our future. He distinguishes three different changes: Not only an increase in intimacy, which means technology moves even closer towards us than a phone or wristwatch and will always be switched ‘on’, but also increased immersion: “computation so close that we are inside it”. Lastly, but most importantly, Kelly speaks of a general increase in ‘senses’.


    “We will keep adding new sensors and senses to the things we make. Of course, everything will get eyes (vision is almost free), and hearing, but one by one we can add superhuman senses such as GPS location sensing, heat detection, X-ray vision, diverse molecule sensitivity, or smell. These permit our creations to respond to us, to interact with us, and to adapt themselves to our uses. Interactivity, by definition, is two way, so this sensing elevates our interactions with technology.” From: The Inevitable, Kevin Kelly, Viking 2016.


    Through these extended senses and sensors, we are able to perceive the up-until-recently invisible. Including both the small – such as the molecular and nano-technological – and the big, amongst which radio waves and the end of the Milky Way. This means that on the one hand, we are registering the deeper layers of reality on a more profound level, and on the other hand, we are surrounding ourselves with realities that are becoming more and more virtual.
