"Media Lab" Permanent Exhibition

National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation

This event has ended.

The permanent exhibition "Information Science Technology and Society" focuses on work that encourages active first-hand participation while learning more about information technology. For this exhibition, this floor of about 150 square meters has been renovated in order to create the "Media Lab," a flexible space capable of accommodating various exhibition configurations. In the ever-changing field of information technology, the content of permanent exhibitions on the topic frequently faced difficulties in keeping pace with what they attempted to showcase. Instead of changing exhibitions frequently, the same space of the exhibition venue is remolded each time in a manner befitting the exhibition contents, flexibly.
The "Media Lab", unlike existing conceptions of permanent exhibitions, is distinguished by a space made up of several modular, flexible "media walls" for display purposes, which are themselves not limited to that one use. In order for it to become a space that is continually made and remade, endlessly, the actual structure of the space is simple and terse, allowing a flexible response to viewer needs and the requirements of the exhibition materials.
From April 24th (Thu) to August 31st (Sun), a special exhibition entitled "Expressive Researchers" will be held, taking its inspiration from the intersection and fusion of art, technology and science, showcasing the "device art" mechanisms that will challenge future frameworks through which art will be created.



From 2008-04-24 To 2011-05-31
*Exhibition hours extended until 18:00 from May 3rd-6th, Open on April 29th and May 6th
