Work with us

How to ethically develop and implement emerging technologies? Should we use genetic engineering to prevent diseases – or to increase our intelligence? How to live with regenerative implants that merge with body tissue? Should we develop lab-created hybrid species if bees go extinct? It’s these types of questions that form the basis of our projects.

We work with scientists, researchers, policymakers, governments, institutions and companies to explore the impact of societal developments and new technologies. This leads to crucial insights that help to make better-informed decisions and policies today for a desired future. The result of our design-oriented services includes many forms such as interactive installations, performances, film, games and digital visualizations.
