The new Arcam exhibition examines the changing relationship between technology and humans, and the impact of technology in and on the built environment.

Prototypes of our projects Shuttercam and Shutterring are part of the exhibition, as well as a part of the interactive installation Senses of Amsterdam.

Devices, cameras and algorithms collect data in and around your house. Very convenient when it comes to your groceries and the temperature in your living room, but do you know what else they know about you? The exhibition Private_Eye_Butler_Spy explores the pros and cons of all this smart technology - and how designers deal with it.”

— Indira van ‘t Klooster, director, Arcam

The relationship between technology, society, and habitation has always inspired designers. In the exhibition Private_Eye_Butler_Spy, you can look back and gaze ahead. Through the themes ‘Human//Machine’, ‘Smart Spatial Manifestations’, ‘Privacy and Ethics’, and ‘Signal Not Found’, the exhibition explores which ethical issues and design tasks this high-tech future entails.
