SUPERINTERNET RESIDENCY 2023
Superinternet Residency 2023
The superinternet.world is a user-created digital world made of 3D drawable ROOMS.
You can think of the superinternet.world as a very poor metaverse: a world initially composed of empty white cubes, which come to existence only when artists start drawing.
The .world has been developed by the Superinternet Foundation over the course of the last year. As its first initiative the foundation invited 40 artists and illustrators coming from different parts of Earth, such as Ciang (Francesca Colombara & Matteo Dang), Clusterduck, LaTigre, Anna Magni, Vola Noemi, Nick Öhlo, Gio Pastori, Alex Valentina, Zipeng Zhu.
In a residency that lasted from January to June 2023 the 40 artists were invited to paint a three-dimensional room each, as they were practically building the .world itself.
Every room has been assigned through a smart contract on the Polygon chain (environmentally friendly and very cheap in terms of gas fees) and it is now on sale on the superinternet.world OpenSea channel. Unlike the average NFT projects, the NFTs do not exist with the aim of being collected or being the subject of speculation. Instead, they exist specifically to support artists and fuel the .world’s economy. Whoever buys them will own the room and the right to continue drawing.
Even if the rooms are destined to be rewrote, the draws will never be destroyed. They will be part of a VR installation destined to travel around the world, the archive of the .world subconscious.
The superinternet.world is a world building experiment questioning the matters behind the development of Web 3.0, creating an environment that protects artists, illustrators and creators. This is just the beginning, the initiative will continue with other exhibitions and events, up to the maximum limit of 7225 rooms. Collaboration is open to everyone!
As the .world Manifesto states: “We are trying to build a poorly made bottom up anti-Metaverse, where users can be not-sad, or at least not exploited, by design.”
