If you’re at Davos this week or in London, there is groundbreaking art to experience.

At Davos this week, Istanbul-born artist Refik Anadol will present “Living Archive: Nature,” an installation featuring the Large Nature Model’s early artistic experimentations blending visuals, sound, and scent to champion the beauty and genius of nature. From February-April 2024, Anadol will present the first large-scale public exhibition at London’s Serpentine (North) in Kensington Gardens. If you are at Davos or in London, I hope you’ll go see these installations and let me know what you think. I wish I was there to experience them myself! They are not without their controversies, and I hope this generates useful dialogue to drive climate action.

The Large Nature Model is the world’s first open-source, generative AI model focused on Nature. It’s built from an extensive, ethically sourced natural world dataset. It is the core of DATALAND, Anadol’s future museum (that I think will be in L.A.) and Web3 platform dedicated to data visualization and AI art.

These installations are collaborative efforts, bringing together pioneers in diverse fields including the arts, scientific researchers, institutional archives, and advanced technology.
