mikro residency: saul albert
all through june and some of july, we have the pleasure of having saul albert working in mikrogalleriet. saul albert is a former dorkbot organizer of dorkbot london, and a we’re thrilled to have him around. his current work is fun and eco-friendly too. check out his elevator pitch:
“i am recruiting you to join a world-wide people’s pyramid scheme to save the planet from environmental catastrophe, and have fun doing it.
if you recruit 5 people this week, and they recruit 5 next week, by december the entire population of the world will be on board. and if everyone who can afford to pledges 5 euros each, and commits to a shared goal, the pyramid scheme will have the ability to change anything.
and what happens to all the money and power?
that is up to the pyramid. along with your pledge, the pyramid invites your ideas, suggestions, hopes, and inspiration. if you could ask *everyone* to do something to save the planet, what would it be?
at the cop15 climate summit in copenhagen in december 2009, all the ideas will be discussed by the public around the talkaoke table on street corners, in shopping centres, parks, and schools, and spread around the world via social networking sites and news media.
finally, people will gather in a copenhagen theatre for a dramatic, democratic, decision-making game-show where they will be able to share ideas, consult internet participants, and vote on the collective action.”
