The speed and complexity of technological and cultural developments strongly influence contemporary and future practices in art and design. Therefore the professional world is looking for young creatives with a multitude of talents and skills, the ones who look beyond the borders of their original disciplines: creating pioneers. Pioneers because they’re not trained to reproduce what already exists, but to put the future applications and techniques into practice right now.
