An Evening of Close Encounters with Hung Lu Chan

4 DAYS of BIO ART & DESIGN

(English event)

Are you an adventurous sci-fi fan, always looking out for ufo's and the latest extraterrestrial blockbuster?  Are you then also prepared to completely turn your perspective around and  get closer to your inner aliens for once? 

But our imagination of aliens is largely based on projecting our own biases, emotions, and desires into the unknown. In other words, aliens begin within us. And even though the advancement of technology has disenchanted many imagined figures and narratives, our inner aliens have never ceased but evolved along with human nature. 

With their BAD Award-winning project Close Encounters with Inner Aliens Taiwanese social designer Hung Lu Chan and neuroscientists Floris de Lange, Floortje Bouwkamp and Matthias Ekman of Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour delve into the theme of inner alien encounters, utilizing fMRI and AI to analyze and explore our internal visual imagery of otherworldly realms.
