Future Food District (#FFD) presents possible scenarios for the application of new technologies at each step of the food chain. It is a micro universe in which the visitor is invited to explore different interactions between people and food. The project is managed by Carlo Ratti, Director of the SENSEable City Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, together with Carlo Ratti Associates design studio. The #FFD is located on the south side of the Expo site where there is also the Open Air Theater and the walkway which connects with Cascina Merlata.
Xing presents the fourth edition of Live Arts Week that will be held in Bologna, Italy, from 21st to 26th april 2015 at MAMbo – Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna and other venues.
This event dedicated to live arts, unique in Italy, hosts a blend of new productions that revolve around the presence, performance and perceptual experience of sounds and visions.
Live Arts Week is a 6-days event of ‘existential athletics’. It does not put art before the artists, but exposes to forms of sensitivity and ideas, welcomes hybrid and polyglot works, hosts creative singularity, weaving a sort of counter-design of use.
The program offers a calendar of live works (performances, shows, environments, concerts, expanded cinema, film and live media with unique dates, productions and previews) presented by important personalities in the international and contemporary research scene.
