I AM Weekend'19 . In randomness we trust

Actualizado: 27 de mar de 2019

IAM Weekend is the meeting for creative thinkers and leading organizations who care about the futures of the internet(s).

This year the focus of the conference has been "The Quantumness of Archipelagos". The fundamental idea of Quantumness is the fact that the particles can be in different places, simultaneously, and the concept of archipelago refers to a global mentality formed by many islands. These two concepts make us reconsider ourselves from a new perspective since the age of the Internet is redefining our relationship with the planet.

This new stage in which humanity is immersed, is creating a new interconnected world consciousness.

The Quantumness of Archipelagos

How can we decelerate, decolonize and debrief the coevolution of the internet(s), digital technologies and societies?

The universe is always expanding, the "grid" where everything coexists is stretching constantly. From this concept, we can extract the idea of infinity which makes us consider the need that if something happens, it will necessarily happen again. Thinking this way, things may be frightening.

In order to make it more tangible, we could take this reflection to the opposite direction and make it smaller, and not as big as the infinite universe. We know that electrons have the duality of being particles and waves simultaneously, and we are not more than temporary manifestations of the vibrations of these waves in the grid that is the factory of space of the universe. We can see ourselves, human beings, as the tool or the way for the universe to have consciousness of itself.

Thinking about the size of the universe, what we know about it, and the tiny role we play on it, it can be terrifying, but it would be much more scary if we were alone.

We had the chance to know about the interesting project "BLACK ISLANDS", by the new Collective of Art & Architecture.

In the old days, the maritime boarder of a country was defined by the distance which the war cannons were able to reach, today this paradigma has changed into what is called Virtual Colonialism.

Virtual Colonialism is defined as the idea of territory appropriation via the mapping system, such as Google Maps, and it can hack forms of topography, where policies of occupation and expropriation operates via image data.
