Until 31 January 2022 >> MOD. UP CLOSE

Are you ready to get up close? MOD.’s UP CLOSE is an exploration of a spectrum of closeness. Starting inside our bodies, we consider touch and relationships with people and machines before spanning out to the way we move through place and space. Find out about the 100 trillion microorganisms living inside you, see what tears look like under a microscope with each tear as individual and unique as its owner – and have a spontaneous conversation with a stranger, but is it human or AI?

1 February until late November 2022 >> Experience MOD.’s INVISIBILITY

INVISIBILITY is everywhere. It’s the people you don’t notice, the environmental changes we can’t see, and the algorithms working hard behind the scenes. What can we notice when we start paying attention? In MOD.’s new exhibition, we’re shining a spotlight on all the things we can’t see to help us better understand the world around us and our place in it. Join us as we time travel underground, we dive into the tech monopolies controlling our lives, and we slow down to notice the importance of the Country around us. Are you ready to see the unseen?
