Barbican Goes Digital

Stunning exhibition immerses us in digital—past, present and future

Digital Revolution at London’s Barbican centre is a sneak preview into a post-digital future. It is completely immersive and interactive, with a number of the exhibits responding dynamically to human movements – without the user having to wear any motion-capture devices.

A noticeable theme is the blurring boundaries between the physical, virtual, and digital worlds. One section specifically explores integrating the body and the digital environment, particularly through wearable and cybernetic technologies.
