26 Oct Glitch Residency x Genesis 3.0
ALTERNATIVE INTELLIGENCES: The Genesis of exploring the intersections of AI, blockchain, nature & humanity in a magical 17th century Chateau.
Primavera De Filippi invited us to think outside of the box and to explore usages of blockchain technology that leverage alternative forms of intelligence—be it artificial intelligence, emotional intelligence, corporeal intelligence, and all the intelligence stemming from animals or other living beings—for the production of artistic works that promote collaboration between humans and machines, humans and nature, humans and non-humans, both in the tangible and intangible worlds.
Glitch encourages collaborative endeavors amongst artists and engineers, with a particular focus on interdisciplinary works that incorporate art and technology in new and innovative ways. Glitch also encourages artists to move beyond the traditional minting of NFTs in order to explore blockchain as a medium, investigating the new functionalities and programmability of blockchain technology in order to create new and innovative artworks that would not be possible without the blockchain.
The two – week long residency that we’re part of with the BMW Foundation is housed in Château du Feÿ, which is a canvas to experiment with ways of living, gathering and connecting that can be a model for the future. The Château is a place of imagination, of rule breaking and blueprint making, of bridging worlds and ideas: old and new, city and rural, global and local, ecological and technical. It’s a really magical place that is very close to the dream that we initiated in 2013 with AYD – a vision that grew out be a lifestyle on how we can harmoniously live with nature, being part of a community of like minded people who wish to make the World a better place.
