M∞ ARCANUM CAPSULE
The ARCANUM CAPSULE is a unique, digital portrait of a M∞ PILOT – a data package of at least 50 Mega Byte - that travels space and time forever.
The production of a regular ARCANUM CAPSULE requires the active presence of a living PILOT and follows a standardized procedure that includes the completion of the M∞ ADMISSION FORM, a series of photo sessions, voice and video recordings etc. The encapsulation involves interaction with trained etoy.AGENTS to devise the POST MORTEM PLAN, which is a substantial part of the work of art.
The online procedure leads to the automatic generation of an M∞ XML file which is the technical base of each capsule.
Currently one fully realized ARCANUM CAPSULE is waiting for public distribution. Other capsules are in production. At this point you can't access ARCANUM CAPSULES. The first fully developed unit enters the social memory system at the moment the first fully trained and encapsulated M∞ PILOT crosses the deadline. To experiment with components etoy.CORPORATION recruited 4 TEST PILOTS. Their digital and mortal remains are used to observe technical aspects, legal implications, emotional interferences with the public and relatives.
