The Silicon Sphere: Intro

Minted on Feb 15, 2022

Description

The token is part of a series of manifestations, called the Silicon Sphere. It is a dystopian vision, hundreds of years into the future, based on reference material that includes art, literature, film, science and technology. As an art project, this will be further developed through sculptures, models, drawings, paintings and video installations.

Our civilization has expanded to space stations and industrial facilities colonizing the solar system, which is described as a Type 2 Civilization. At the same time, the situation on Earth is difficult, with diseases, climate problems and depleted resources.

Scientific developments provide great insight into biological processes. Technological advances have taken digitization to new heights. The political landscape has changed with this dramatic development of society; social structures, philosophy and religious principles are challenged through the fusion of artificial intelligence and medical advances with androids and robotics.
