BRAIN STORMING

Catalyst of thought in action

Two Intelligences/Clouds, with a digital soul and a form and language that evoke nature while also invoking the image and dynamics of a thinking brain, face each other in a symbolic conversation. Their aim is to connect fragments of sustainability-related content from the web in a dialogic manner, triggering a brainstorming session and an exchange of ideas that ignites inspiration. This process creates a fertile displacement for the viewers, engaging them in a broader reflection where everything and everyone is interconnected.

The two AI/Clouds draw from the vast expanse of the cloud, recombining elements of reflection and intertwining themes such as smart cities, climate change, sustainable development, biodiversity conservation, energy efficiency, circular economy, sustainable tourism, environmental policies, urban planning, adaptation to global warming, and more. They weave together these topics, sparking a tapestry of discourse that invites contemplation and exploration of interconnected ideas.
A dialogue, not a monologue, to establish connections and keep things in motion. It is not about providing definitive answers, but rather about fostering a vibrant flow of thought, where ideas emerge and evolve dynamically. This conversation, nourished by conversations itself, opens up and invites participation. It suggests the need for ongoing and pluralistic engagement, emphasizing the importance of continuous dialogue and exchange of ideas.

A playful device that doesn’t take itself too seriously, yet discusses profoundly serious matters.

As we observe the conversing clouds, we will see them light up in a back-and-forth manner. We can recognize the speaking cloud and the listening cloud based on the areas that illuminate, corresponding to the regions of the brain involved in listening, thought processing, and the act of speaking.

It will be possible to access the content of the brainstorming through a dedicated application, allowing real-time reading of the exchange between the two clouds. Additionally, reports compiled by Chat GPT will be available at the end of each module/topic. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to contribute to the conversation by sending their own messages. The clouds will adorn the project with haikus, poetic and evocative synthesis of the topics discussed, serving as a closing gesture to elevate and invite further inspiration.
