Go on a journey of discovery and make your way through a labyrinth in the cargo hold of a shop. A collection of interactive installations connects art with (complex) science. Theories and model systems from a number of fields, including the natural sciences, philosophy, and linguistics, form the basis for remarkable images, sounds, and texts that you generate. Or is it the other way around?
Going in hopscotch into all the nooks and crannies of the brain. De Spullenmannen explore art and science, zap from maths to music, trip over the visual arts and delve into the history of big ideas. Against a bursting decor, the Spullenmannen share their fascinations with the public. Science and art flow into one another. Maths turns into music, interspersed with stories about explorers at sea searching for land, astronomers searching for inhabited planets, and chemists searching for the origin of life. A chaotic show filled with live experiments, makeshift constructions, formulas, and amazement.
In the year 300,000,000 the job of a space window cleaner has, for some undetermined reason, not been made obsolete by automatisation yet.
