Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of Media Art is an exhibition that expresses the disconcerting and delightful world of the digital age. Both playful and challenging, each artwork asks audiences to immerse their senses into a ‘thinking’, ‘feeling’ and ‘doing’ contemplation of what it is to be human in the digital age of technological acceleration.

Biologist E.O. Wilson believes ‘the real problem of humanity is the following: we have Paleolithic emotions; medieval institutions; and god-like technology.’

Curated by Jonathan Parsons and Lubi Thomas, Experimenta Make Sense features over 20 leading international and Australian artists who engage directly with this conundrum.
