    Reiner Schneeberger / Art Blue

    I once worked in supercomputing at Control Data as Head of Consulting dreaming with Seymour Cray to catch the movements of the stars. Now I dream of an Actual Virtual Reality for the Arts where everyone can become part of it. I am an artist, curator and writer and I have a degree in simulation, that’s why Art Blue listens to the owl-AI, which is my excuse if things go wrong.


Event Details

My owl says, “This presentation must be a keynote.” That is not true, it has to be THE KEYNOTE. In case you arrive on time to listen to the keynote from the beginning then you will know for sure what to answer when you are asked next time, “What do you do for a living?” Then you can answer, “I MAKE AMERIKA ART AGAIN.” And when the person shakes their head or even worse gives you a sign of stupidity, it will be time to tell the naked truth, “I USE OPENSIMULATOR.” This presentation is based on social science. This presentation uses an AI. This presentation is Art. This presentation is disruptive. The “K” in Amerika stands for a reason, a reason that will be uncovered. In fact, this presentation is all about you. You, being a person who may have heard over the years, “Oh … Really? You still work with Opensimulator, isn’t that like old SL?” In fact, the person might be thinking: “How boring.”
