Can the metaverse be used as a tool to help us envision and manifest the future of our dreams? Named after the shelter under which the Dogon people of Mali, in West Africa, traditionally gathered to discuss and exchange ideas, TOGUNA World is an ever-expanding laboratory of dreams dedicated to the investigation of the future. The brainchild of polymath artist and future thinker Pierre-Christophe Gam (aka Gam A Gam), the mixed-media Art installation centres around a metaverse divination portal informed by IFA, an ancient spiritual tradition from west Africaas a way of accelerating our imagination towards envisioning the kind of future we want. Existing both as a digital and a physical mixed-media Art installation, the platform encompasses a metaverse dream world, a digital divination portal and a multimedia platform which aims to serve as a forum for possible futures. The artist will introduce TOGUNA WORLD and the Sanctuary Of Dreams.
