On March 6th and 7th, the Crypto Design project traveled to Ljubljana, Slovenia. The INC organized a workshop for design students in collaboration with Aksioma, one of our partners in the State Machines project. Patricia de Vries, Anthony van der Meer, Tim Brouwer and Loes Bogers were at the University of Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts and Design to talk about algorithmic and cryptographic art, design strategies for working with abstract concepts, and what the difference between the deep and the dark web actually is.
The videos of the talks are available at: http://aksioma.org/cryptodesign/

State Machines: Art, Work and Identity in an Age of Planetary-Scale Computation
Focusing on how such technologies impact identity and citizenship, digital labour and finance, the project joins five experienced partners Aksioma (SI), Drugo More (HR), Furtherfield (UK), Institute of Network Cultures (NL), and NeMe (CY) together with a range of artists, curators, theorists and audiences. State Machines insists on the need for new forms of expression and new artistic practices to address the most urgent questions of our time, and seeks to educate and empower the digital subjects of today to become active, engaged, and effective digital citizens of tomorrow.
