About

Experiment. Reflect. Iterate.

Join us during NFT.NYC for a series of emerging tech experiments, presentations, and reflections on the history of art and technology.

About this Salon Series

This is an event series from e∙a∙t∙}works that experiments with new models and modalities for supporting art and culture in Web 3. We aim to connect to the history and impact of past experiments to inform process and approach today. The salons provide an informal environment for collective learning and unlearning, conversation, testing out new ideas, and translating across disciplines and orientations.

Bringing together art and tech organizations and projects stretching back over 50 years, as well as contemporary artists, technologists, researchers, collectors, and industry partners, the e∙a∙t∙}works salons seek to promote and facilitate creative experimentation, emphasizing artistic production over industry outcomes.

Agenda

Installation & Performance by John F Simon Jr:  

Go physical. Come and participate in a collaborative relief printing from our previously released Every Icon NFT series. Each future salon will feature an INSTALLATION of work previewed at an earlier salon.

Experiments from artists, organizations and engineers:

Central to our gatherings is providing visibility to work-in-progress EXPERIMENTS from the artists, organizations and creators leading in the Arts & Sciences. See the works, speak with the artists, and get involved.

Reflections on E.A.T. from curators and cultural leaders:

e•a•t•}works takes its name and inspiration from a key moment in the history of art and technology and seeks to build on the legacy and impact of past artistic experiments. REFLECTIONS from contributors and feedback from attendees help shape the next salon.

Welcome
with MC
12:10 PM – 12:20 PM
How Do We Define Tools for Thinking and Why Do They Matter?
Join Jerry Michalski and John Borthwick as they talk about their interest in tools for thinking, and what excites them the most about the future of the category.
12:20 PM – 12:50 PM
Inflection Points for Tools for Thinking
What are the key inflection points that will supercharge Tools for Thinking in the near future? How will new technologies, user metaphors, and funding models change how people build these tools? John Borthwick will be discussing how the landscape is changing with the co-founders of Readwise, Daniel Doyon & Tristan Homsi.
12:50 PM – 1:00 PM
Q+A
1:00 PM – 1:15 PM
Demo: Protocol Design for Tools for Thinking
Gordon Brander will be presenting a brief demo on Subconscious and the Noosphere, products he and his team are working on to allow Tools for Thinking to become interoperable and better connected.
1:15 PM – 2:00 PM
Lunch and Networking
2:00 PM – 2:45 PM
The History and Future of Software as Tools for Thinking
Some of the earliest examples of software explored by pioneers like Doug Engelbart, JCR Licklider, Alan Turing, and others were at their core technologies that help magnify, inspect, and spread our ideas. Jerry Michalski will be sitting down (virtually) with Howard Rheingold, author of Tools for Thought, to explore the history and future of "mind-amplifying technology".
2:45 PM – 3:00 PM
Q+A
3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Tools for Thinking Product Demos
We’ll hear from builders and thinkers deep in the space and get to take a look at what they’re working on. We’ll be checking out Plexus, Re:Collect, Jerry’s Brain, Subconscious and more. 
4:15 PM – 4:45 PM
Leveraging AI and ML in Building New Tools for Thinking
Alice Albrecht and Linus Lee will be sitting down with Chris Pedregal to discuss their work in leveraging AI and Machine Learning for creating new kinds of tools for thinking.
4:45 PM – 5:00 PM
Q+A
5:00 PM – 5:30 PM
Idea Dimensionality and Representing Semantic Meaning
How do ideas - and the human brains that make and hold them - interact?  Get prepared for meta! Esther Dyson and Jerry Michalski, will discuss the idea of how people work together to shape, compare, intertwine and ultimately produce multi-faceted ideas and multi-dimensional idea spaces.  As David Waltz (Thinking Machines) once said, “Words are not in themselves carriers of meaning, but merely pointers to shared understanding.” Watch and lob questions as the two of them try to build and share the idea of how better ideas can be developed through collaboration.
5:30 PM – 5:45 PM
Q+A
5:45 PM – 7:00 PM
