About The Glass Room

The Glass Room London, 2017

The Glass Room is a public intervention that provides an interactive, fun, and challenging experience, bringing to life the most pressing challenges facing people and the tech industry today. As technology reaches a global scale and becomes embedded in every part of our lives and our environments, The Glass Room examines its impacts and helps visitors explore practical solutions to mitigate them.

The Glass Room was originally conceived and produced in the context of the exhibition “Nervous Systems” with support from Haus der Kulturen der Welt in the framework of “100 Years of Now” and is based on an original concept developed by Stephanie Hankey and Marek Tuszynski, shown in March-May 2016 at the HKW in Berlin, Germany.
