With the rise of virtual reality, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and their effects on human enhancement, we are closer than ever to becoming demigods, mastering our own destiny through technology. A new question must now be asked: what does it mean to be human, more than human?

>HUM(AI)N is a meditation on an impending reality in which machines are not separate, but a part of us. Featuring some of the world's latest and most innovative technology-based artworks, the exhibition activates the movements of the body by challenging the heart and the human faculties of the mind—faculties that are increasingly being enhanced, altered, and shaped by technology. Welcome to the future.

Each ticket grants access to the exhibition for a 3-hour time slot. Tickets for the last departure of the day only grant access for a 2-hour time slot
