Follow along as artist and quantum physicist Libby Heaney explores the virtual game world of Hivemind with arebyte’s Rebecca Edwards (Curator) and Nimco Kulmiye (Producer), accompanied by Serpentine’s Eva Jäger (Arts Technologies Curator) as the Orb.
Hivemind is a knowledge game developed by the Berlin-based collective Trust, designed to be a tool for artists to navigate and discuss their research in a playful, nonlinear way. For this episode, Heaney modified the game to reflect the properties of quantum mechanics.
