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 and operating systems for collective intelligence. Our project was an idea funded by a DAO.
Our response to a need for community engagement was an experience based in a future scenario where people donated dreams to algorithms with the purpose of adding attributes to collective societies. Through the creation of optimistic individual and collective ideas, 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 poem that lives a life of its own here:
