The idea of a joint exhibition of the Capa Center and Kitchen Budapest came from the fact that a new generation of observation instruments appeared on the market (Google Glass, Oculus Rift, etc.) and several research and development efforts are aiming at developing new tools for observation and image processing, reinterpreting our vision and our visual perception. Some of these instruments already have experience and direction of applications, but they are still not wide-spread. Therefore they are primarily used by early adopters, advanced users and artists. The mission of the exhibition is to map, systematize and show these ways of application – the applications visioned and suggested by the manufacturers, side by side with the applications visioned by the early users and with the hacked applications.
Our objective with this exhibition is to show to young people (14 to 25) in a playful and entertaining manner what these important instruments are which provide help to our vision and observation that will determine the next decade. We want to attract their interest, to influence their creativity, to encourage them to try and use these instruments and to shape their thinking, to enlarge their vision about potential applications.
