Museum hopping in Singapore has become a weekend filler activity for me. It’s both intellectually-stimulating and soul-inspiring for me to revisit the past – examining old relics to understand the history of our mankind through the events and innovations. Museums today often present us with the artefacts of the past, and not very often on the future of the world or our own mankind. And I probably wouldn’t have known about the existence of cyborgs and superhumans in this real world if not for HUMAN+, the latest exhibit at ArtScience Museum.
I’ve always been fascinated by the exhibits at ArtScience Museum. Both disciplines, Art and Science, always seem like they are a world apart, but our very own ArtScience Museum in Singapore has cleverly blurred out the lines of this two contrasting subjects, bringing about this beautiful and spectacular marriage between the arts and sciences. The ArtScience museum’s exhibits have always been intriguing and mind-blowing. The HUMAN+ exhibit is another hit for me.
Meet Nadine. Our very own locally-produced life-like robot. Nadine is created by Nadia Magnenat Thalmann, Director of Institute for Media Innovation (IMI) at Nanyang Technological University. This socially intelligent robot has got a great sense of humour.
