ESA: Triennale Milano 2022

ESA images and AES installations in Unknown Unknowns

The 23rd edition of the Milan International Triennale kicked off on July 15, 2022. It is one of the most important events in terms of architecture, art, and design, serving as a space for open and pluralistic debate and comparison, where different experiences, cultures and perspectives can meet. Entitled ‘Unknown Unknowns. An Introduction to Mysteries’, it looks beyond the known territory of planet Earth. It is an attempt to answer questions ranging from the evolution of cities to the oceans, as well as from genetics to astrophysics. The exhibition includes projects by over 400 artists, architects, designers and researchers from more than 40 countries.

Curated by Ersilia Vaudo, astrophysicist, and Chief Diversity Officer of ESA (European Space Agency), the Unknown Unknowns exhibition is the centerpiece of the Triennial. The exhibition highlights, among other things, the architectural challenges related to new perspectives and habitat creation in space. It is also an area whose boundaries are blurred and permeable, ultimately dealing with the unknown.

Ars Electronica Solutions was invited to participate in this exhibition and to design the “earth from space” area with a new version of the ‘φ-experience half dome globe’ and a multi-screen installation featuring ESA’s most impressive images of our planet.

Founded in 1923, the Milan International Triennale can be visited at ‘Palazzo dell’Arte’ until January 9, 2023.
