Perpetual Beta [encounters in open space] – Exhibition
An AI-bot designer, virtual moss, and non-violent communication. Who knows where this all ends?
From June 4th to July 4th, The Grey Space embarks on a large-scale experiment entitled Perpetual Beta. In close collaboration with a group of makers and the public, a new form of presentation is explored based on the principles of open source. The result is an exhibition of work-in-progress, where the public is invited to take a look, participate and contribute.
The makers involved have in common that they all critically embrace technology: interactive design studio Moniker, design studio for interactive media RNDR and artist Carolien Teunisse, who forms an occasional duo together with designer Sabrina Verhage.
Collective Works designed the exhibition, created a modular support structure – in collaboration with Refunc architects – and developed their project ‘From 1.50 to 1.20’.
The online counterpart of the project will take place at perpetualbeta.online – an environment made in Common.Garden (developed by Constant Dullaart) – a virtual space where you can meet others and in which all documentation and events of Perpetual Beta are recorded and broadcasted by the OUTLINE collective.
Perpetual Beta can be visited online anytime from 4 June onwards via perpetualbeta.online and the exhibition at The Grey Space is open to the public between 9 June – 4 July on these days and hours:
