The Stem Cell NetWork II


The installation is designed to be placed in a public space where different people pass by for different reasons. We have used the following text to present the ideas behind the installation.

'Landscape of Expectations' – take a walk in the public debate
Would you like to take a walk in the public debate about research and new technology? Maybe you want to include your opinions?

'Landscape of Expectations’ is an installation about Danish opinions on research, politics and future. Is it okay to use a 6 day old human embryo for stem cell research? Who should decide the development of research? How should we spend our common ressources?

The Installation invites you to participate in the debate. The question is how we should organise future society - and your contribution is important.

The exhibition period has now ended and the installation is dismantled. It was re-located - set up and tested in different places and was also presented at a number of conferences.
See where...

The installation was suited for a placement in a big room, where people passed by or
stayed for a periode of time, ex. an assembly hall, a receptionarea, a cantina or something like that.
The installation measured 6,4 x 7,4 meter, and besides there had to be space to walk around it. It also needed access to electricity. The installation could not be located outside.

In addition to these exhibitions, it is possible to have the installation re-located in other places by contacting Maja Horst,
