TUE 3 - MON 9 JUL
In the near future, our buildings will share some of the features of living systems. They will be able to sense us and respond to our presence. They will know who we are and what we need. Our buildings will become monsters for living in, which we will inhabit among organs that care for and protect us. Step into our monster through its mouth, experience its many organs, and hope to escape through its tail.
