Thanks for sending this Bjorn!  Looking forward to seeing how the event evolves.

I've been reflecting on the below quote from Lee Smolin about physics and quantum theory lately. I wonder if it might relate to art and other fields as well?

"The relational revolution is already far along.  At the same time, it is clearly in crisis.  On some fronts, it's stuck.  Wherever it is in crisis, we find three kinds of questions under hot debate.  What is an individual?  How do novel kinds of systems and entities emerge?  How are we to usefully understand the universe as a whole?
The key to these puzzles is that neither individuals, systems, nor the universe as a whole can be thought of as things that simply are.  They are all compounded by processes that take place in time.  The missing element, without which we cannot answer these questions, is to see them as processes developing in time.  I will argue that to succeed, the relational revolution must embrace the notion of time and the present moment as a fundamental aspect of reality."

Time Reborn, p. xxix

VERY LARGE WORKS is an online show organised by http://noemata.net/, containing a pavilion of https://thewrong.org/ new digital art biennale (Nov 2019 - Mar 2020) curated by Bjørn Magnhildøen and Zsolt Mesterhazy, and The Burrow, a secondary space curated by Aad Björkro (see below).

URL: http://verylarge.works/ and https://h.aard.work/

The exhibition contains platforms for open and collaborative works, in addition to individual works.

This mail's highlights:
--- The Cyborg Matrix is a virtual 3D environement where works can be added to the space. Some works from Very Large Works are already displaying in the space. Do you want to add you art to the space, head to https://thecyborgmatrix.org or send an email to cyborgMatrix at cyarco.com<mailto:cyborgMatrix at cyarco.com>. See you in cyberspace!
--- The White Page Gallery is a decentralized network of people dedicating a page on their own website to someone else's work and exhibition. In that sense it's a peer review curatorial network. Read more and join in at http://www.whitepagegallery.network/
--- 100000000 transparent pixels - Dominik Podsiadly - thanks to this artwork you become a cyber rich man because you have one hundred million transparent pixels. http://kolo-x.net/VLW/100000000.html
--- Do something until something stops you doing - Novi Otten Erytryalsilani - [Planting a single grain in the pavement]. https://vimeo.com/354910282 *******************************************
