We Declare May 29-31, 2020

“What does it mean to be human in the era of artificial intelligence?

Everything is shut down, cancelled and vaporised in the air. Whatever we were doing doesn't feel relavant any more. What can we do when every communication in a physical space shifts to the digital realm?

We invited 4 creatives to virtual dinner during lockdown in a world pandemic situation.

From four different cities, Amsterdam, Berlin, LA and Montreal, we immediately felt understood each other in a form of eating a meal together. When warm meals were in front of us, things happened natural and we had a very honest conversation about how our life and practice changed, sharing with our virtual audiences.

What happens if musicians meet technology?

⁣RGBdog invited 4 experimental electronic musicians working with Ableton, MaxMSP, TouchDesigner, neural networks and live coding.

In a lockdown situation in their bedrooms, the 4 musicians created audio-reactive visuals with their sound, actively using experimental technology.

BedroomLiveOut. is to support artists and to bring the community together to create and inspire experimental electronic music and the audio-visual world.

How is an online dance Party with a webcam, but you’re only seen as sticks?

Interview with Daniël Korssen May 04, 2020

Streamed on Instagram live

RGBdog interviewed Daniël Korssen, a creative developer from Utrecht, NL.

During quarantine times when many Zoom parties were rising, Daniël designed and developed a digital dance party platform using Posenet and Spotify API. When users get into the browser, they can share themselves dancing but only in stick figures.

RGBdog joined the party and found it fascinating that it certainly removes the feeling of having to present in an appealing way through a camera.

In the interview, we can hear how technology is used to bring joy and happiness, also how it enhances the community bonding experience.
