Polyphonic Futures, an investigation into the notion of bio-digitality through exploring the smart material silk at Digital Design Weekend 2016

Now in its sixth year, the Digital Design Weekend brings together artists, designers, engineers, technologists and the public to celebrate and share contemporary digital art and design, engage in conversations, and learn about processes. Designers and artists take over the Museum with interactive installations, digital projects, performances, talks, open workshops, labs and family-friendly activities taking place around the building, exploring engineering, making and collaboration.

Designer, artist and researcher, Veronica Ranner, will be in the Raphael Gallery presenting her project Polyphonic Futures. The public will be able to contribute to the evolving online platform that visualises emerging infrastructures of the bio-digital — the domain where computational approaches meet biological matter.

Polyphonic Futures is a collaboration with Arts Catalyst, Tufts University (MA, USA), Imperial College. Funded by the AHRC as part of The Creative Exchange (CX).

The Digital Design Weekend coincides with the London Design Festival at the V&A and is part of the V&A Engineering Season.

24th & 25th September:
1hr sessions at 11:00, 12:30, 13:50, 15:20


Over the weekend a huge programme of cutting edge, international projects will be showcased.
