Planet Digital

The exhibition took place at the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich from 11 February to 6 June 2022.

About the project

Self-learning algorithms, rare earths or blessing robots: Planet Digital brought innovative research teams of the Zurich higher educations institutions together with creative minds from design and art.

Together, they developed interactive and immersive installations that let visitors experience the digital transformation with all their senses.

A transdisciplinary lab for research and design

There are over 100 researchers and designers from UZH, ZHdK and ZHAW involved in the 25 transdisciplinary collaborations that made up the exhibition. New methods between research and design were developed and innovative formats for the dialogue with the public were put to the test.
