2021-2022. Hypothetical megastructure, Technological measuring method.


Description and concept:

In 1956, Fredric Brown predicted in a short story how the activation of a super circuit that connected the monster computing machines of all populated planets would result in the genesis of a God. This project assumes a situation where Brown’s prediction could happen without humans leaving Earth to conceptualize the functionality of a God-like machine. The device comprises a massive array of self-reproducing learning machines in four successive levels, wrapping the Earth, a Star, a Blackhole, and the Multiverse. A single triangular button is designed for humans to feed the machine with doubt.
