What could be better than a picnic to kick off RSD 11? Come join us for a cybernetic picnic on the platform, where we dream the dream of a dream in virtual lands.

Picnic blankets have been prepared for you. There is a blanket with otters, a Bali blanket, a West Coast blanket, an Ecology of Mind blanket, and more. Choose yours! Other people will join.

Be advised, entering the virtual lands is not entirely free. There is one obstruction. You have to bring with your virtual self two virtual cybernetic objects. To link to the Gregory Bateson focus at RSD 11, we suggest you bring  ‘Batesonian cybernetic objects.’ Choose wisely.

KEYWORDS: art, play, systems, cybernetics
