Radbot - NFT Bot

RadBots are an NFT collection of conversational videobots created by leading global artists. The project combines 2022’s most advanced artificial intelligence, authored screenplays and Dara.network’s async video-chat platform to bring fascinating AI characters to life on anyone’s phone. RadBots is a radical experiment in modern collectivism and responsible crypto.

NFT Bot is the RadBot that I worked on as part of this project. The IPCC has recently warned it's "now or never" to tackle the climate crisis. What does this mean for the future of non-fungible tokens, their owners and everyone and everything that calls Planet Earth home? Wrestling with this question is giving NFT Bot an existential crisis. Her usually smooth complexion is pixelated with melancholy as she quotes from industry discourse to discuss life on the blockchain.

Telling stories and making conversational bots is now a thing! Not just that, a crypto fund (RADAO) run by a collective of creators, bots and owners is where its super exciting!

Kcymaerxthaere

We are collaborating with Eames Demetrios, Geographer at large, storyteller and designer on his project kcymaerxthaere.com. We will be installing one of his sculptures in a public space in Bangalore. As part of that we ran an online program to bring together a group of artistic collaborators across visual and performing arts and research. Together they executed a large-scale community mural with Augmented Reality layered in that communicates the story of the piece and its connection to its global peers while responding to local context. Playback theatre and Yakshagana performance interventions take storytelling off the walls of the Wheeler Flyover and into the hearts of the community as the giant granite sculpture that anchors this projects is being crafted at Kuppam.
