Cybernetic dream
in the Manege
In the NEW NATURE project, Recycle Group analyzed the transformation of personality under the influence of modern technology, addressing the interaction between humans and machines and researching the possibility of telepathy between them.
Artists Andrey Blokhin and Georgy Kuznetsov have been recognized as winners of the Kandinsky prize, and were participants in the exhibition of the Russian pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale of Contemporary Art. In their exhibition in St. Petersburg they studied the cultural and visual codes of the world of Homo Virtualis, where citation indexes, engagements rates, and number of likes and views are specially prized, where virtual reality is replacing religion and winning ever more adherents over to its side.

We encounter the great Nothing, an ideally empty space that contains within itself everything that can exist and that is necessary for eternal virtual life. We learn about the ideas of digital cleanliness and environmentalism. We get answers to our questions about the digital prophet, who knows everything about us. We have an even deeper experience of being bodiless, and the promises of virtual eternity become even clearer. We also uncover the system’s biggest fear – being unplugged and without any lines of communication.
This project invites us to simultaneously experience both the terrifying and attractive aspects of experiencing yourself in a cybernetic dream, where technology is not seen in the context of development and progress. It is only a means of connecting to the global mental space, which, thanks to the huge number of times it has been accessed, has become sacred. The Recycle Group’s exhibition is a futuristic contemplation of the new, enormously powerful technological systems and of the place of living things within them.
Here there is no conflict between the natural and the technological: the elements of nature are revealed by an algorithm that manifests itself while remaining invisible – as a thought, a spirit, knowledge. What occurs here is the transformation of matter: the organic world and humans are given the ability to live a full, virtual life. Here, the person, analysing the neural network of the environment, becomes aware of the new spirituality and ethics of the relationship between human and machine.
In this project we journey from one cybernised landscape to the next.
The exhibition New Nature opens up a new portal into a world permeated with code.

The exhibition in Moscow continues the conceptual vectors of lectures and discussions held in Saint Petersburg, and attracts scientists, artists, philosophers, and experts from different fields in order not to miss a single detail in the conversation about the new reality that the ubiquitous digital environment confronts us with.
