What is Collective Intelligence?

What separates us from the rest of our non-human mutant ancestors? Collective intelligence brings together fragments of knowledge to create a fostered generation of urbanites and traders. Density brings specialized people together whom never know that they are so closely defined by the miles that actually separate them. Exchange started in Africa:

The process of cumulative innovation that has doubled life span, cut child mortality by three-quarters and multiplied per capita income ninefoldaworld-wideain little more than a century is driven by ideas having sex.

The Perpetual Acrylic Cube

Combining Robert Morris’ABox With the Sound of Its Own Making with Baudrillard’s writing on the art auction this sculpture exists in eternal transactional flux. It is a physical sculpture that is perptually attempting to auction itself on eBay.

Every ten minutes the black box pings a server on the internet via the ethernet connection to check if it is for sale on the eBay. If its auction has ended or it has sold, it automatically creates a new auction of itself.

If a person buys it on eBay, the current owner is required to send it to the new owner. The new owner must then plug it into ethernet, and the cycle repeats itself.>
