“Cosmopolis #1.5: Enlarged Intelligence”, opening on November 2 in Chengdu, in south-west China, in collaboration with Centre Pompidou, France and Mao Jihong Arts Foundation. Presenting artworks and programs by 60 artists and groups, as well as philosophers, sociologists, writers, architects, and musicians. In the title of “Enlarged Intelligence”, exploring ecology, technology, and envisioning how we today may draw on intelligent technologies to advance social values. Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan who are known to Nunu Fine Art friends are presenting a specially-commissioned installation based from their “In-Habit: Project Another Country” series. As usual they invite Chengdu residents to participate in the creation, using 200 pieces of paper and 100 cartons to build a “future city” within 7200 seconds. Each small house made by the participants will eventually be grouped together by the Aquilizans creatinga city that gathers the participants’ imagination. In the view of Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan, the future city should not be in single form, in addition to the alienation of high-rise buildings and straight avenues, the human homeland also needs an ecological community that can communicate and co-exist.
