We have entered the experimental age…
Experiments are no longer conducted just in the laboratory. They have become collective experiments that concern each and every one of us.

Bruno Latour, 2004

HotHouse Symposium

Utzon Room

Sydney Opera House

Project Launch Party

6pm, 27 July


Sydney Opera House

HotHouse at the Sydney Opera House, 27-28 July 2010, is a “collective experiment” initiated and led by the National Institute for Experimental Arts (NIEA) at UNSW in association with Object: Australian Centre for Craft and Design and the City of Sydney.

HotHouse brings together artists, designers, curators and creative thinkers in a quest to develop models for sustainable environmental change. This “collective experiment” calls upon art and design to offer practical means of transforming spaces, environments, and even cities in ways that are enduring and energising, and that, most importantly, engage all sectors of the community.
