Got it! Sorry. My Zoom was just not updated.

Now I can watch it all!

Comment by Reyna J Perdomo on November 7, 2021 at 10:28am

This is the message I get while trying to watch replays.

The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported.

Comment by Reyna J Perdomo on November 7, 2021 at 10:26am


Cannot watch the replays! It is not downloading the media???

Any help with this?

Hi all!
I would love to "collect" an NFT from each participant of this group ... ;) maybe on the motionDAO store :::)
@Lenara hi! Would you accept work from me (flower with bee) in your flower store?

About stillness, it is thinking an economy of reduction instead grow.

Follow the instructions to install and put the folder stillness_OpticalFlow inside your Processing folder.

You will need to import two Library:

Now run the code and keep still ;)

and I share my meditations ...

The value of stillness

Silence is golden …

My first thought - generating energy with movements - thinking energy as currency

With dancing, with fitness with motion …

But somehow that didn't convince me as basis for a currency system

What is valuable, what is precious, what has value today ... ?

We live in an incredible abundance - extremely badly distributed - but in reality there are too much of everything .... except stillness and silence.

What would be a monetary system based on stillness?

You generate wealth by staying absolutely still, you earn your fortune by keeping really quiet:

The value of Stillness.

A software could perceive that. A Blockchain encrypted code.

You can than keeping still as long as you want … or as long your Body allow it.

It will be naturally regulated by the demands of the body.

This is my thought, an economy based not on the dollar but on stillness.

Code: stillness_OpticalFlow

Run this code in P3

"Speech is silver, silence is golden" 

Thomas Carlyle quoting the proverb 1836, originated in Arabic culture.

To listen:

The Tremeloes - Silence is golden

I am very sorry that I could not attend the zoom today.

I'm at a Hackathon and I didn't have a chance to take a break to attend the zoom ... is it possible to get it back? Is it possible to see the recorded video?


Humans exploring collaboration, coops, hybrid art, dance, embodiment, cognition, tech-science, networks, post-humanism and culture.



This is a social networking website connecting people concerned about innovation and experimentation on art, dance, embodiment, cognition, science, networks, post-humanism, media and the unstable landscape of contemporary culture and life.

We are in a transitional phase and refocusing the network with a broader interdisciplinary framework. It will reflect a contemporary  community interacting and embedded  unstablelandscape.

This network is maintained and administrated by Marlon Barrios Solano as an independent art/curatorial/social innovation project.
