Art and science are both practices that are based on intellectual creativity; they shape our experience, perception and knowledge of the world. Science and technology, being major societal and cultural activities, are potent forces which are transforming life and influence society on every level. Therefore, critical reflections of new technologies are important for developing our understanding, while artistic imaginations offer us new ways to interpret new realities. The Making_Life exhibition at Lasipalatsi Näyttely presents the results of such a critical reflection.
