INTERFACE: A Decentralized Autonomous Exhibition

James Simbouras, Denise Thwaites

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Over 4th-6th October, the Trojan Foundation and Blocumenta collaborated to produce the installation INTERFACE presented at the Year of the DAOs event in Osaka, as part of Osaka Blockchain Week. The 2 screen installation showcased six artworks by Flippos Vasileiou, Yiannis Pappas, Michelle-Marie Letelier, PERSONA NON GRATA, Martin Lukas Ostachowski and Jonathan Fry, selected through the curatorial deliberations of three DAOs.

Aside from providing a test-case for how distributed online decision-making might one day be extended to full scale exhibition contexts, this experiment highlighted the potential of inter-DAO cross-pollination and re-purposing to cultivate further decentralized communities. In addition, this DAO-as-artwork drew attention to the role that creative expression and engagement may play in fostering community trust within new ‘trustless’ systems.
