Choose Your Own Universe:
Vitalik Buterin and Christopher Kulendran Thomas in conversation
Institute of Contemporary Arts
December 2022
A mixture of symbols: numbers, coordinates, Chinese characters surrounding the word 'EARTH'

This talk explores some of the key concepts from the exhibition Christopher Kulendran Thomas: Another World, with the artist joined on video by technologist Vitalik Buterin. Central to the exhibition is the possibility of new societies and alternate futures built by co-organised communities that are enabled by new technologies.

Buterin (creator of the Ethereum blockchain), is a leading thinker on decentralised technologies. Together he and Kulendran Thomas introduce earth.net, a new project bringing together collaborations across art, architecture and technology to build shared tools for cooperative economies.

The event will be accompanied by the opportunity for discussion and will be followed by music in the ICA Bar.
Choose Your Own Universe is presented in collaboration with the RadicalxChange Foundation, a non-profit for communities building next-generation political economies. It kicks off a series of conversations presented in collaboration with KW Institute for Contemporary Art in conjunction with a parallel presentation in Berlin of the exhibition Christopher Kulendran Thomas: Another World.
