Small changes matter – explore how they can make a huge difference in art and science

Could moving one point make a big difference for the bigger picture? Power often comes from large numbers, loud voices and flashy slogans. It can also come from small differences which add up or act as a tipping point.

Artists have explored the power of these subtle hints for centuries. Today, they are joined by renowned designers and scientists to use even more effectively the power of small differences, and invent subtle ways to disrupt the status quo. In this interactive exhibit, come and discover by yourself how these new techniques are invented, and get inspired in return to see how your small decisions can make a huge difference.
