The Collection

Human dimensions

Our collections reach five global regions, exploring human dimensions affected by technology.

We needed a subjective, yet defined framework to dive deep into what is meaningful for us, and how technology is affecting each of these aspects of life. 

Academic studies in social sciences were combined to a way of approaching the individual as well from macroenvironmental analysis (Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Legal and Environmental), with emphasis on social and technological dimensions of the model.
