Atheism and luck
Atheism and luck is an installation of plastic carpets that have been shown alternatively as a floor piece, a wall hanging, a support for the works of other artists, as well as being used as a space to perform on, meditate or listening to music. Here a new element is introduced, a modest chandelier laden with good luck charms: Italian horns, hand symbols and Turkish and Chinese charms. The work is a speculative space of uncertainty where not-knowing and the anticipation of future opportunities are ironically blended.
“Everyone’s mind will be permanently linked to the wireless Internet, and through the Internet to everyone else’s mind. This will trigger very radical changes. In particular, telepathic groups able to instantly share and elaborate thoughts will produce an enormous acceleration in the development and deployment of new ideas, and cause the emergence of “group minds.” And once neural communication is sufficiently deep, accurate and fast, it will be possible to transfer the informational content of a person’s brain, with memories, thoughts and feelings, to a higher performance storage and process- ing device. This “mind uploading” technology may eventually provide practical immortality.”- space physicist Giulio Prisco
