5G Network Cosmogonies

In this performative event, we occupy the space between our fevered anticipation of the next generation global network, and it's yet-to-be realised infrastructure, to allow the participants to collectively techno-mythologise - away from the dominant fictions that currently narrativise the reality of the 5G network. This virtual environment builds on an algorithmic R&D instrument that maps the mytho-ideological density of 5G content, through which its lead narrators have naturalised their existential worldviews. During the event, participants are invited to co-narrate the mythology of a network cosmogony. 


This event is fully booked.


Techno-mythopoeia is an enterprise for tech-narrative demystification and an experimental myth-making practice initiated by Guillemette Legrand and Vincent Thornhill which aims to re-narrate an amalgamated tech-Odyssey from collective imaginaries. 

The project is an expanding collaboration, currently involving 3D artist Filip Setmanuk, NLP Specialist Joleana Shurley, and sound artist Jim Zweerts.


Every Friday it's 'Kunstavond' for the Kunstblock art venues in the Witte de Withkwartier: MAMA, TENT, WORM, V2_, Lab for the Unstable Media, Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art and CBK Rotterdam’s collection of art in the public space.


With support from V2_Lab for the Unstable Media, Rotterdam, and the Creative Industries Fund NL.
