STRP Scenario — STRP Scenario 18
Garden of Ghost Flowers (to be seen in the STRP Expo) is a virtual life form that grows thanks to contact with human visitors. From the perspective of the human voice, Garden of Ghost Flowers is a verbally abstract and visually concrete experience. A conversation about it requires the opposite. What could be a more decentralised form of thinking, speaking, and listening together?
STRP Scenario #18: Infinite Conversations reflects on the – often difficult to frame – topics of non-human computer use and wilderness in the digital garden. The Scenario starts with a keynote lecture by media philosopher Yuk Hui on the infinite imaginative power of artificial intelligence. Then Lundahl & Seitl and Untold Garden invite you to the 'Infinite Conversations' experience, which is performed in complete darkness. In this space, various conversations take place under the guidance of invisible guides. Human microphones capture conversations for the online visitors who can also take part in the dialogue. Listen in the dark, be inspired by the effects of resonance and discover how you as an individual can become part of infinite conversations.
