Nature and Art have always been considered as connected with each other. Nature with its vital and mysterious force has traditionally been inspiration for the artist for imitation, improvement or interpretation. But what if the environment, the artists is inspired from, is no longer simply natural? Science creates artificial life forms and a computerized virtual reality, images become more important than substance in communications and marketing of everything from cars to politics to private life. Multiple existing realities are long part of contemporary life, each one as “real” or as artificial as the others. 

"Drive the change" is the slogan we found in a former Renault garage in an untenanted building in the center of Zürich. The first fifty years lumberyard, the building was turned into a garage and after almost fifty years is supposed to become next year a building with high-end apartments for luxury living. What or who drives change or is change growing organically anyway? Or are we driven by change? If we're sitting in the front seat, in which direction should one drive the change, forwards or backwards? 

The former garage in Zürich's center turns for 100 hours into a platform for 120 artists to reflect "change" in an interplay of the natural and the artificial.
