Wisdoms for Love 3.0 is a web-based video game by Keiken from a larger world-building project titled Metaverse: We Are At The End Of Something. Developed in collaboration with obso1337 and rendered with Ryan Vautier, this interactive work features mocap performance by Sakeema Crook and sound design by Khidja. Rooted in a decision-making based gameplay,the player uses wisdom tokens (of which there are 100 in total) to help navigate to Love 3.0. The game explores the bubbled-up feelings, compressed consciousness, and fervent beliefs of the contemporary moment, where the desire for change and a more equitable and decentralized future is collectively being challenged. This piece asks: What wisdom do we need to get to Love 3.0 not just Web 3.0? What kind of decentralized systems do we want in our base reality (the Earth), and the metaverse? And how do we access global kin-making for the future of humanity?
Keiken, meaning “experience” in Japanese, is a cross-dimensional collaborative practice based in London and Berlin and founded in 2015 by artists Tanya Cruz, Hana Omori and Isabel Ramos; they frequently work with many other collaborators. Through moving-image, new media installation, virtual/augmented reality and gamified performance they test-drive impending futures in the realms of the physical and digital - phygital.
