Embassy of Data

A collaboration between Het Nieuwe Instituut and the City of Eindhoven

The Embassy of Data aims to raise awareness about the possibilities and opportunities afforded by digital data, but also the dangers and limitations of its use. Our data panorama will show what kinds of information are being collected where in the neighbourhood around the embassy. A diverse programme of activities, ranging from a 'data desk' and accessible lectures to a serious game and an international conference, will enable visitors to join the conversation about how data affects our everyday lives – often invisibly.

Embassy of Robot Love

The Embassy of Robot Love will give visitors to the World Design Event a chance to get close to robots and artificial intelligence. They can see what it’s like to exchange affection with a robot in the Living Lab. We’ll give robots a new lease on life at the Abandoned Robots’ Reception Centre. In a varied programme of public events, we’ll look at possible scenarios for how we humans can relate to robots in a loving way.

Modebelofte

Modebelofte presents Digital Realists: a new generation of fashion designers who ignore the borders between the physical and the digital world. In the abandoned V&D warehouse, the visitors can admire the ingenious creations ‘in real life’ but also virtually enter the ateliers and dreamworlds of the participating international talents.

Vlisco

Vlisco and Modebelofte present the result of their very first ‘Fellowship’; a new initiative, whereby a recently graduated fashion talent is selected to realize an experimental innovation project in collaboration with pioneers from science and industry. The choice fell on Sander Bos who, with his MA in Fashion from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in the pocket, got to work with Vlisco’s design classic ‘Day and Night’.
