The Algorithm of Donated Dreams
— An online speculative design experience for DAOstack (2019)
The DAOstack team is an international blockchain-based community exploring decentralized governance & operating systems for collective intelligence. Our project was an idea funded by a DAO.
Our response to a need for community engagement was an online speculative experience based in a future situation where people donated dreams to algorithms with the purpose of adding attributes to better societies. Through the creation of optimistic individual and collective scenarios, members prototyped realities they could start developing now.
The dream donations were translated by an algorithm (that exists thanks to The Trope Tank at MIT) into a collective piece that lives a life of its own here:
