The event kicks off tonight with with an installation by Nuit Blanche New York, using a selection of works by Melodie Mousset and Martynka Wawrzyniak.

Other highlights throughout the week include Tuur van Balen‘s introduction to the world of DNA hacking, Thomas Lommee’s take on the future of co-design using his OpenStructures project, and Choy Ka Fai‘s performance that combines art with technology. The program runs until Sunday 26th August and all events are free.
