The assembly of our new shared memory bank, the digital cloud, and the accelerating development of artificial intelligence and life that we witness, are processes that combined have the potential of laying ground for the creation of Worlds. Man’s journey through the ages contains one constant, innovation, and on our path towards the future we are constantly changing our perception of our world and ourselves.
If we have arrived here today, in time and space, as a consequence of life having arisen by chance, as a beautiful accident, then is this still an accident happening, only now with us as its designers? In our apparent urge to reinvent ourselves, the trajectory itself seems just as interesting.
The fifth Trondheim biennale, Meta.Morf 2018 – A Beautiful Accident – has the ambition to present for a broader audience art projects, conferences and concerts from international artists, musicians, writers and researchers with an interest in Speculative Design and Futures.
Are we prepared for being thrown out of Tellus’s cockpit as a product of our innovative nature? Seated in economy class, sipping on Piña Coladas, listening to the Beach Boys while blissfully sailing into the ultimate sunset?
Welcome in March 2018!
