Digital technologies, the global economy and climate change can be viewed as systems of different actors and their interactions. System thinking makes it possible to structure a complex reality. By creating models of phenomena, systems also produce methods to change reality. The artists in the exhibition want to reconfigure the world by deconstructing and reimagining the systems of the environment, society, technology and economy. The works offer glimpses of the present and possible futures through artistic research and digital media.
