WORKSHOPS – UPCOMING
19 –23 February, 2024
HEAD – Genève, Switzerland
As scientists delve into the quantum world, a mystique unfolds that defies classical intuition, beckoning the exploration of inexplicable dimensions within the fabric of reality. The quantum realm confronts physicists with a reality that seems to transcend the limits of human comprehension, echoing age-old philosophical inquiries.
The playground thus serves as a metaphor for transience. Being a temporary world, the playground emerges as a symbolic exploration of the transitory nature of our experiences. Life, in its essence, can be viewed as a series of temporary worlds—places where we explore, learn, connect, and grow. On this ground, the definition of space can take a symbolic form with blurred boundaries.
Playgrounds, whether physical or metaphorical, become spaces where we navigate the mysteries of existence, engaging with a microcosm where the rules of reality are momentarily suspended, much like scientists navigating the mysteries of quantum mechanics.
What are the characters of a contemporary Mystic Playground? How can they be interpreted and activated through the lever of design? The workshop aims to explore the area where mysticism, quantum mechanics and play converge, embracing the complexity of the universe —a vast playground of its own—a place where mysteries unfold, and the journey itself becomes the destination.
