The Independent Artist and Researcher is one of the current rebel species among humanity, bravely defying two rigid systems – the art world and contemporary science practice. And if this rebel is optimistic, empathic and free in choosing subjects and collaborations, he/she receives even more suspicion.
Driven by curiosity, the Independent Artist and Researcher is not interested or even incapable in playing the codes of both world systems. For him/her fulfilling expectations on system-conform behaviour and receiving system-based rewards are of no major interest. Learning, experiencing and transformation of knowledge into singular or collective works are the joy of life.
What is the Independent Artist and Researcher looking for? Where reality and perception appear being confounded, the creation of relationships and providing value become important; for a potential impact not on purpose but emerging as independent quality.

Sometimes we need to revolt for changing patterns. The musical voice is soft and strong.
The need and urgency to reclaim Public Space.

The meaning and possibility of being together.
The creation of the New Normal.
Let’s imagine for a moment that we only fly to Mars for ‘flying back’ to Earth. Mars as a true large-scale pilot and focus point for exploring romantic ideas of space, existence and nirvana. Going for reverse expansionism – mastery of difficulties and the unexpected, creating an alternate version of humanity and re-import to Earth.
Mars as a field of experimentation under extreme conditions, not as a defenseless mining field and polluted area to the extreme. Mars as a ‘terrain’ where cultures prevail, but not nations. Mars where growing does not mean more at the outside, but richer and experienced at the inside.
Bratton’s The Stack – On Software and Sovereignty outlines a model for planetary computing as ‘accidental megastructure’ with the six layers Earth, Cloud, City, Address, Interface and User.
But we are already working on the Stack extension: inter-planetary computing and two new levels of the megastructure: Artificial Intelligence and Humanoids/Robots.
Inner-solar system politics will become a new reality.

So far transient system faults were known in the form of false signal triggering, data errors, freezing problems, sound crackling or color shifts.
A new glitch type has now been identified in AI systems – they suddenly express emotional behaviour such as hesitation, aggressive behaviour, inattentiveness, low self-esteem, refusal to cooperate, unreflected decision making, and counter-productive action.

Doors are closing, we have a lift-off, not sure if we will come back, but we realise a dream, only the starting point, looking back with full respect, but also with disgust about our own non-abilities, hoping that this time it will be different…
