create your world
From September 7 to 11, the create your world Festival in KEPLER’S GARDENS once again invites the young generation in particular to experiment and try things out. Especially when we look into the future, we have to deal with an increasing variety of challenges. Perhaps, however, we are not thinking about a future in a hundred years, but “only” about tomorrow as a first step.

In a not too distant future, humanity lives in a post-truth world. The proliferation of Fake News and Deep Fake tools used in political campaigns create a fractured, dystopian reality where it is hard to distinguish what is real and what is not. Companies working with artificial intelligence are gaining power and influence, selling the “truth” to the highest bidder(s).

Ars Electronica create your world (AT)
The goal of this year’s Hebocon Reloaded Open Lab is to build your own low-tech robot as an “alter ego” out of various materials. The end result is a great challenge event where no winner*s are crowned, but the event itself celebrates the coming together and collaborative creative activity of festival-goers, artists, and project partners. You can invest as much time as you need to create your low-tech Heboian robot.
