How virtual is our future? At this last Club Real evening five personal visions on the reality of a real virtual future.


- Hybrid Space Lab (Frans Vogelaar and Elizabeth Sikiardi) of whom Vogelaar explores the future and meaning of Hybrid Space, while Sikiardi gives her vision on the future of virtuality based on the statement ‘Beyond the You-topia’.
‘Hybrid Space’ consists of a collaboration of architects, urbanists, designers and media artists with soft- and hardware engineers. Together they develop projects for combined analog and digital urban, architectural, design and media spaces. In this way creating a new multidisciplinary field combining all new possibilities the virtual world has to offer.

- Jules Cocke is co-founder and director of Squint/Opera, often awarded architectural film studio, which films are so beautifully convincing, you sometimes wonder if the future might not be a bit disappointing once you get there. He tells about his profession in which visualizing a possible future is central.

- Rinus van den Berg works as an Architectural & Industrial designer at the DSM Material Science Center. Van den Berg sketches the future and new applications of the 3D printer during Club Real.

- Why are virtual spaces and presentations always so anaemic? That is the question central to the column Eric Kluitenberg, media specialist connected to culture and politics center De Balie, writes for Club Real #4.

- Plus a VJ performance by VJ HUMMER aka Nils Mühlenbruch, who transformed tens of visitors into avatars during Checking Reality.
