THE GRID

 

Who? Aligning artists and technologists to enhance our humanity

The Grid is a global network connecting artists and technologists. It was launched in Silicon Valley and has since transformed into a global multi-stakeholder platform of artists, technologists, cultural institutes, global art institutions, policy makers, and tech companies.

What? Art Powers Technology

The Grid follows an ambitious vision: We want to incorporate art-thinking into the development of new technologies and to jump-start a conversation between artists, technologists, and policy makers from around the world.

Technology flings us into the future.

The Grid explained by Vikram Chandra

Emerging technologies are both local and global. Tech innovation coming out of Silicon Valley and elsewhere has major ripple effects throughout the entire world, dominating our lives in both positive and negative ways.

By placing artists within tech R&D teams at the heart of the global tech industry, in Silicon Valley, we allow art thinking to positively influence tech development processes. Additionally to our rapidly growing network, our new activities build on the findings of our investigation, published in The Grid - Art + Tech Reports of 2019 and our recent The Grid - Art + Tech Report of 2020.

NODES: ART+TECH ENCOUNTERS
How do we make sense of minting an artwork into an NFT, when minting artwork on the blockchain has an enormous ecological footprint? How can we make sense of this art-tech landscape in relation to the environmental challenges we face, and what it means to be making digital artwork in a time of crisis?
