The fair took place in Palach Youth Cultural Center in Rijeka, on 4th and 5th September 2020.

”Inspired by the nineteenth-century concept of the World’s Fair, conceived as an opportunity for inventors and engineers to unveil their inventions and discoveries, AND Fair combines some unusual exhibits and weird ideas that serve as a catalyst for new approaches in the use of technology. It’s about promotion of the idea to “hack” the technology that surrounds us, and encouragement not to follow factory settings and manuals blindly, but to adapt devices to our needs and interests.” (Source: Drugo more)

”Genesis is a device which allows you to experience the entirety of the human life in 24 hours. Genesis works almost like a hand watch implanted under the skin. Implants decrease the serotonin levels in the human body  throughout the twelve stages of the simulation. The simulation lets you experience the entirety of the human life in one day. You experience 12 stages from birth to death.” (Extract)
