The smaller travelling version of ‘The Imaginarium: A Theatre For Constructed Ecologies’ has been reviewed by Arbitare Magazine. You can see the full exhibition from its Berlin opening in the Fast thoughts column. The Imaginarium is co-curated by Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today and Studio Lukas Feireiss with design by Luis Berrios-Negron.  The exhibition brings together a group of architects, artists and scientists including TTT’s Liam Young, Francois Roche/R&Sie(n), Greg Lynn, Philip Beesley, Rachel Armstrong, Theo Jansen, Terunobu Fujimori, Triptyque ArchitectureIlkka Halso, Lucy McRae, Cero9Mas Yendo, and many more to engage the prescient subject of ecological change and adaptations caused by artificial interventions into existing ecosystems.

The Imaginarium is curated as an unnatural history museum of archaeological fragments, botanical samples, exhibits, evidence and curiosities. Archived in the accompanying Catalogue of Speculative Specimens we see a jump in the fossil record, an evolutionary leap, as the interbreeding of biology and technology has given birth to a strange new nature.
