Algorithmic Imaginary - Art on the Blockchain and in the Metaverse
|Author||HEK (Haus der Elektronischen Künste); S. Himmelsbach; B. Magrini (ed.)|
Blockchain technology is changing the internet and the way we cohabitate, communicate, and behave, both online and offline. Advocates of the technology point to the development of a new internet (Web3) and conjure up notions of a gigantic future metaverse and the emergence of increasingly decentralised organisations and structures. Some see this as crypto-anarchistic wishful thinking, while others forecast a more democratic and just future for all. ‘Algorithmic Imaginary’ focuses on the works and ideas of artists and theorists who analyse, question, and reconceive both blockchain and associated applications such as DAOs, NFTs, and the metaverse.
