The Glass Room pop-up until Sunday 12 November 2017

A disruptive tech store with nothing for sale. Instead, it challenges you to reconsider the technologies you use every day, how much they reveal about you, and what choices you can make in our quantified society. 💻 📱

The Glass Room is a pop-up tech store with a twist. At first glance, it offers the latest in shiny digital consumer products, such as the newest tablet, fitness tracker or facial recognition software. But as you go inside, you’ll find there is nothing for sale.

Instead, as you look closer at the ‘products’ on display, you’ll see that they are playfully and provocatively selected to turn the technologies we all use on their head. The artworks, design pieces, and ‘Ingenius’ staff welcome you to take a look behind the screens into the hidden world of what happens to your data. Dig deeper into how much we reveal about ourselves!

Visitors to Hokusai Exposed are immersed in the works of the great Japanese Master, Katsushika Hokusai, “re-created” using state-of the-art digital technology, as well as the vibrant 3D streets and pleasure districts of Edo, 18th century Tokyo. The world of ukiyo-e style woodblock prints will be brought to life in a unique event which engages all the senses and is the first showcase of the “re-create” concept outside of Japan.

Hokusai was selected by Life magazine as one of the most important 100 people in the past 1000 years, and he has had far reaching influence. A host of artists, including Manet, Degas, Renoir, Monet, van Gogh, Lautrec, and Gauguin bear his thumbprint, while composers including Debussy, Stravinsky and Satie also translated the inspiration stirred by the art of Hokusai into their music. His mark can also be felt in influential Japanese pop culture movement today, such as manga and anime.
