»Future Dreams« examines the role of technology in art. Video portraits of 42 children are presented in a spatial installation. Their gazes and gestures appear as if they were captured in virtual spaces and games. Beyond the algorithmic ordering systems that are revealed in the choreographies and arrangements of the videos, the audience sets off on a poetic journey that tells of the ecological crisis and the next digital native generation’s longing of for future healing.
