During the month of April Hackers & Designers did a two week artist in residence Odd Stay via Nijmegen's Oddstream. The result of Odd Stay was presented during the Odd Talks lecture night. The lecture night, titled The New Enlightment Age engaged to audience to discuss the position of citizens in today's world of technology.
During their residency James Bryan Graves & Selby Gildemacher of Hackers & Designers have developed a prototype of a new work in collaboration with KunstLAB Arnhem. Following the metaphor of a crowdsource religion, the work invites its visitors to interact with a chatbot and to contribute to their input to the bigger installation. The installation is currently being prepared for an exhibition in October.
