This installation investigates how humans will occupy themselves in a post-scarcity world made of nano-technology.
In the future, our environment will be designed by intelligent nano material, themselves made by nano manufacturers. This scenario could lead to a material prosperity, pushing human to rethink their surrounding.
Nano speculation is an immersive visual acoustic and olfactory experience of the creation of the universe. The audio is recorded by John Cramer, a physicist at the University of Washington. He devised an audio recreation of the Big Bang. He used data from the cosmic microwave background on temperature fluctuations in the very early universe. The data on those wavelength changes were fed into a computer program called Mathematica, which converted them to sound.
A prototype of a fictional nano-encapsulated scarvf of the space perfume is also available during the performance.To release the core, the coating can be ruptured through squeezing, melting, dissolving or through chemical processes.
In the future, we will be interested in this sensorial experience as a leisure occupation. We will live in a fully efficient world that we totally understand, therefore, we would like to investigate data that we can not physically explore: the infinite small as well as the infinite big. This performance lead to broader interrogation: will we still continue to work even if it is not necessary? This shrink to materiality could leads people to find new ways of thinking, envisaging their economy, politics and social interactions in a totally different manner.
The images of the installation are works in progress. Click to learn more about the project and the video.
