Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera
THE MILAN EXPERIMENT
from 6 to 10 December 2019
h 09.30 - 18.30
The Imaginometric Society, founded by a group of students from the Brera Academy and the Milan Conservatory of Music, created the project that represented Italy at the Quadrennial Stage Design Exhibition in Prague (June 2019), which was awarded the Award for Imagination.
The Milan Experiment develops the research on human imagination begun in Prague, adding new possibilities to the Imaginometer, the instrument designed to demonstrate the first imaginometric principle: imagination is what makes us human. Admitted one by one into the heart of the Imaginometer, the Performative Machine, visitors will live an immersive, personalised and unrepeatable experience, relentlessly realising the second imaginometric principle: imagination increases by reflecting itself. The collective imagination of the Milan Experiment will draw the face of the next research, linked to the third imaginometric principle: imagination cannot be reproduced, but only recreated each time.
