Learn to Fail

Unless you’re a 3-year old, a scatterbrain or a daredevil, you probably harbour (secretly or not) a fear of failure. Yet you might also be used to saying “Failure’s good, and it’s unavoidable if you want to get ahead”.

How do you reconcile the two? By experiencing first hand what a scientific failure might look like and feel like, from disappointment to frustration, and analysing the feeling.

From the 27th of June until the 2nd of July, and as part of “Microbites of Innovation“, the Art Program of ACM Creativity and Cognition 2017, at the ArtScience Museum, I will be presenting “Learn to Fail”.

Visitors will face 3 different challenges about observing and understanding the world around them, and ample opportunity for curiosity and failure to satisfy it.

This installation is a new iteration of the “Learn to Fail” installation first conceptualised for the Substation’s School of Uncommon Knowledge in 2016.

Entrance to the exhibition is free.

In the meantime, if you want to brush up on failures before attending, I recommending cramming at Failomics.com
