The team also wishes to draw attention to an upcoming project that involves a game, an exhibition, and digital tokens powered by Tezos. This initiative is led by Serpentine Arts Technologies in collaboration with emerging Brazilian artists and technologists, notably Gabriel Massan and his team. Third World: The Bottom Dimension emerges from Massan’s interest in technological, social and economic decentralisation and includes participatory digital tokens powered by Tezos. Players can record ‘memories’ of their own actions as they play the game, and by minting this record (or snapshot) on the blockchain, build a public archive of multiple perspectives and actions. In addition, a limited-edition collection will bring together Massan, their collaborators and a wider community of web3 artists. The. exhibition will offer visitors an opportunity to experience the ideas, emotions, and mechanics of the video game in a hybrid physical-virtual setting and in community with others.

From July 23 – September 10, Serpentine Arts Technologies and Gabriel Massan will present an immersive video piece on the world’s largest wrap-around screens for Outernet Arts on Tottenham Court Road. The installation is free and accessible to the public, running every Sunday between 12h – 18h.

The programme proposes critical and interdisciplinary perspectives on advanced technologies through artistic interventions, challenging and reshaping the role that technologies can play in culture and society.

Tezos is a pioneering Proof of Stake blockchain, redefining what it means to hold and exchange value in a digitally connected world. A self-upgradable and energy-efficient Proof of Stake blockchain with a proven track record, Tezos seamlessly adopts tomorrow’s innovations without network disruptions today.

Tomás Saraceno’s “Web(s) of Life” marks the artist’s debut major showing in the UK. The exhibit features work from various collaborators, including local communities from Argentina and Cameroon, as well as projects like Aerocene and Arachnophilia. Central to the exhibit is Saraceno’s fascination with spiders, exploring how their web structures and behavior intersect with human culture and mythology. While at the Serpentine South venue, visitors can explore, a site related to a traditional spider divination practice. This initiative was requested by local diviner Bollo Pierre Tadios during Saraceno’s 2019 visit to Cameroon and has been developed with the Arachnophilia community, uniting people, spiders, and webs in collaborative research.
