Hidden in the former utility area of a vacant 13 floor office in
Utrecht, the "Crystalpunk Workshop for Soft Architecture" will evolve an
empty room from nothingness into unknown states of technological
enhancement. Unlike the alphabet that always knows where it is going,
this workshop does not.
*A Room of a Crystalpunk's Own*
The Headmap manifesto, the Coleridgian masterpiece of independent
software development for spaces and places, observed: "Every room has an
accessible history, every place has emotional attachments you can open
and save". New technologies can associate places with layers of free and
editable content from which the past can be re-enacted, like a murder at
the scene of the crime is re-enacted, to re-experience and stir vanished
memories. Little minds living in software can eat any piece of data,
extract meaning from it and email it to you when the right criteria has
been met. Our Crystalpunk Manifesto famously drew connections between
disconnected fields of knowledge and explained to the world our
intention to program minds and matter simultaneously. This workshop
marshals these manifestos of inspiration into real practises with scars
of happy absurdi(r)ty engraved on their souls.
