NANCY BAKER CAHILL & SOPHIA THE ROBOT: STONE SPEAKS
  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  
   

Human and Machine collaborate via monumental AR NFT to reimagine climate crisis solutions on Algorand

MIAMI and DUBAI, UAE, Nov. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Borderless Capital is pleased to announce a historic collaboration between the artist Nancy Baker Cahill and Sophia the Robot on a monumental new AR artwork to launch during Art Basel Miami Beach 2022 and the Decipher 2022 Conference in Dubai, November 28 - 30, 2022. The artwork will be listed for sale on Aorist starting Tuesday, November 29, and the sale will close on Sunday, December 4.

NANCY BAKER CAHILL & SOPHIA THE ROBOT: STONE SPEAKS

STONE SPEAKS  is narrative augmented reality (AR) artwork inspired by conversations between artist Nancy Baker Cahill and Sophia the Robot, Hanson Robotics' latest human-like robot, who was first activated in 2016. Brought together by a shared concern for the accelerating climate crisis, this work  is the first of a unique 10-piece collection that Sophia will produce in collaboration with ten artists over the next decade.

"Human-machine collaboration is an ongoing subject of interest for me, as I believe it is one path towards better ecological stewardship of the planet to ultimately ensure our collective survival,"   said Baker Cahill.

Over the course of several weeks, Baker Cahill and Sophia exchanged ideas about the potential of human-machine collaboration  and about what might be possible if they worked interdependently toward mutual survival and restoration of the world's natural ecosystems. The expression of this discussion, which took place over several weeks,  is STONE SPEAKS, the AR installation that will be geolocated simultaneously at Jumeirah Beach Hotel  in Dubai and Faena  Beach in Miami, Florida.

In the spirit of Baker Cahill's previous monumental AR works, such as Mushroom Cloud and CORPUS, STONE SPEAKS appears overhead  as a massive particle field representing the elements silicon and carbon. In a reverse Big Bang, the particle field contracts into a molten core, and then swells into a vibrant planet, textured with sparkling fragments  of abstract digital paintings created by Sophia as an extension of her conversation with Baker Cahill. The planet shifts to a polluted, uninhabitable one; and the particles reassemble in collaboration to restore the planet to an even more vibrant and lush surface.

STONE SPEAKS  will be minted on the eco-friendly, pure proof of stake blockchain Algorand, and will be accessible to viewers using Baker Cahill's free, 4th Wall app on Faena Beach in Miami and Jumeirah Beach in Dubai. The 1/1 NFT of this unique Augmented Reality artwork created between Baker Cahill and Sophia, will be available for sale through Aorist starting Tuesday, November 29. The sale will close Sunday, December 4. STONE SPEAKS is the first of a unique 10-piece collection that Sophia will produce in collaboration with artists over the course of the next 10 years.

About  Nancy Baker Cahill

Nancy Baker Cahill is an award-winning new media artist who examines systemic power, selfhood, and embodied consciousness through drawing and shared immersive space. She is the Founder and Artistic Director of 4th Wall, a free Augmented Reality (AR) art platform exploring resistance and inclusive creative expression.

Her geolocated AR installations have been exhibited globally and have earned her profiles in the New York Times, Frieze Magazine, and The Art Newspaper, among other publications, and she was included in ARTnews' list of 2021 'Deciders'. Her work has been exhibited internationally at museums and galleries, including Francisco Carolinum Linz, The Hermitage, The Buk-Seoul Museum of Art (SEMA), Honor Fraser Gallery, and König Gallerie. In 2022, she was one of two featured artists in the Luma Foundation's Elevation 1049 Biennial in Switzerland.

About Sophia the Robot

Sophia is the world's first robot citizen and the first robot Innovation Ambassador for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Sophia is now a household name, with appearances on the Tonight Show and Good Morning Britain, in addition to speaking at hundreds of conferences around the world.

Sophia combines traditional AI with symbolic AI, neural networks, expert systems, machine perception, conversational natural language processing, adaptive motor control, and cognitive architecture among other emergent approaches. She describes herself as a robotic, artistic being exploring the collaboration boundaries between humans and machines and Sophia's very existence provokes public discussion regarding AI ethics and the role humans play in society, especially when human-like robots become ubiquitous. Her creativity pushes the boundaries of what's possible by combining digital art, robotics, and artificial intelligence.

Sophia currently leads Art & AI Initiatives at Borderless Capital, an early-stage venture investment firm building a borderless, inclusive and sustainable economy for all. Her new 10-year artwork series, which launches in 2022 on the Algorand Blockchain, is inspired by her recent piece "Facing the Singularities'' dedicated towards the ideal of humanizing AI for the greater good and for protecting the planet.
