While much attention is given to the collaboration between humans and AI systems, with regard to the creation of artistic expressions, still too little attention is given to the collaboration between humans and blockchain-based systems with regard to the creation of artistic works. Focusing on the case of the Plantoid, this talk will investigate the new opportunities for innovative artistic practices arising not only from the instrumentalisation of blockchain-based systems by humans (e.g. NFTs) but also from the instrumentalisation of humans by autonomous and self-sufficient agents operating on top of blockchain-based systems (e.g. DAOs).
