      Living in Parallel: Adventures in double consciousness and pluralism

      Proceedings of EVA London 2020 (EVA 2020)
      AI and the Arts: Artificial Imagination
      6th July – 9th July 2020
      Double consciousness, Pluralism, Umwelt hacking, Nested ecologies


            This paper attempts to redefine Double Consciousness (DC) as a framework through a number of emerging application areas, including: i) Living in Virtual Reality, ii) Dream Hacking and iii) DMTx Technology. The following questions will be used to frame the investigation: What are the opportunities that these application areas offer in terms of living in parallel? What are the corresponding challenges? Can adopting these forms of DC help us to see ourselves from other perspectives? How will DC technology change the experience of reality for individuals, for groups and for society? What are the ethics of these DC technologies? What are the limits of DC and how can Pluralism contribute?
