Archives at Risk - Doors of Perception

Mediamatic & Het Nieuwe Instituut

Doors of Perception, was a series of conferences relating to design, technology and the future. The first conference, a collaboration between the Netherlands Design Institute and Mediamatic, was held in Amsterdam in October 1993 at the RAI convention center. It was a groundbreaking conference at which leading thinkers from the fields of graphic and industrial design, architecture, information technology, philosophy, computer science, business and media assembled to consider the culture and economic challenges of interactivity, the challenge of "smart objects" and "smart space" as computing and communication increasingly permeate the environment and the role of design in turning information into knowledge and within new forms of industrial organization.
