Can machines help us to look at life from a different perspective? And what do we need to change in our organizations and companies if we take the interests of other life forms just as serious as our own human ambitions? On international Earth Day, 22 April 2022, Het Nieuwe Instituut became the world’s first Zoöp. A revolutionary first step to make the interests of non-human life part of its organisational decision-making. In this first episode Wineke explores the Zoöp Het Nieuwe Instituut and meets with Klaas Kuitenbrouwer, researcher and curator at Het Nieuwe Instituut, who was one of the co-founders of the idea of a zoöp. And talks to Theun Karelse, an artist with a broad interest in landscape and technology. Together with the artist Ian Ingram he shares an interest in robots and technology as a way to interact and communicate with nature and from this they started to work on their project Deep Steward. This is an AI programme that develops its own logic for categorising the living environment it observes through a camera.
