Our opening season at Inspace has paid homage to the work of Charles Darwin, starting at the beginning, with the evolution of complex behavior in lifeforms and ending by examining how, 3.4 billion years later we are here, in an informatic age.

We live with the new realities made possible by the evolution of technologies that process information. These things that make us smart pervade modern culture and are changing the way we experience ourselves, each other, our communities and our planet - transforming the story of what it is to be human.

From the rise of intelligence in humans through the evolution of the human brain, the exhibition ‘Are We Human?’ explores the relationship between the environment and intelligent life and ends with an examination of human invention in the age of informatics.
