Entitled “As we may think: Feedforward”, the Triennial seeks "to address the multiple implications engendered by such a technologically constructed time-space, in the real and through the virtual, by examining creative endeavors both from geographical purviews and from cosmic prospects in responding to the challenges and opportunities at stake and to think". Its title references an essay written by the American engineer Vannevar Bush in the summer of 1945. In the piece, Bush imagines a universal communication apparatus and anticipates the advent of an information society.
