PARTICIPATE

Third public workshop of the Global Event College,  November 1 – 5, 2017, Stuttgart

The Matrix Explorations: Technological Singularity or Human Creative Becoming?

The Global Event College invites you to a journey into the 21st century:

What will Reality become, when Virtual Reality becomes real? What will human freedom and creativity look like, when we are connected to the power of Artificial Intelligence? Is there a different path ? Can we develop our own creative becoming, develop a truly new self that is alive in the real world? Drawing inspiration from the ground breaking movie trilogy „The Matrix“, we will dive into the riddles of our perceptions and ideas. Together with participants we will experiment with some of the technologies for brain-enhancement and virtual reality, available already today. Recognizing that there are opposing forces working to sculpt the future we will aim to bring them to clear consciousness, and, using discussion group activities, artistic exercises and presentations by college faculty, search to awaken to the unknown source of life, new concepts and artistic creation. Please join us as we look together with new eyes at the screen and ask: What is the Matrix? What is it that keeps us from seeing through our own ideas and disconnects us from the real world?

„You didn’t come here to make the choice… You came here to understand why you made the choice.“
