Valentina Vetturi presents the new “performative landscape” I Never Think of the Future. It Comes Soon Enough #2 (2021) which lets the public face the historic Cypherpunk Mailing List, one of the most significant online debate and meeting places of the Internet at its onset, where scientists, activists and intellectuals discussed how the world would change through the use of new technologies, delving deeper into questions that are still highly relevant today: Internet, privacy, criptography, pseudonyms, anonymity and digital money.
In the Metaverse, you can surf a range of texts in an interactive digital sound and performative space. They are fragments of dialogues on the Cypherpunk Mailing List randomly chosen by a generative programme based on five words: better, chance, to gain, enough and entropy.
