Science and technology are changing our lives. They are transforming our minds, our possessions and the landscapes we inhabit. In which directions are they heading? What kinds of societies, cities, homes – even people – will they lead to? Are these the futures that we want?

On March 1–3, 2012, Arizona State University hosted Emerge, a campus-wide event that united artists, engineers, bioscientists, social scientists, story-tellers and designers to build, draw, write and play with the future. This interactive exhibition at the ASU Art Museum offers Emerge’s discoveries and creations, giving you an opportunity to get a taste of the futures discussed.

The exhibition Emerge: Redesigning the Future is an unusual show that gives audiences a chance to sample some of the futures imagined during the three-day Emerge event, and includes hands-on activities that make the viewer part of the project.

On Tuesday, April 17, we’ll celebrate the opening of Emerge from 5 to 8 p.m., at a reception sponsored by ASU’s Global Institute of Sustainability. The exhibition will be up through Aug. 25, and is free and open to the public.
