We will program the physical world and use it as a training tool. We will run entire businesses
in simulation before risking a dime in the marketplace. On-the-job training, from medical
procedures to the operation of heavy machinery, will start in the virtual realm where mistakes
are free of consequences. Even the choices we’re faced with in our lives—attend graduate school
or stay in the working world, seek a promotion or find a new job, go vegetarian or try out a new
diet—will be converted into code that we can “run” before making up our minds. We’ll even
simulate phenomena that we don’t entirely understand, finding value in the process and the end
state without getting distracted by the details that lie beyond our scientific knowledge.

Every night from the 22 to the 29 of February 2008, the vapour emissions of he Salmisaari power plant in Helsinki will be illuminated to show the current levels of electricity consumption by local residents. A laser ray will trace the cloud during the night time and turn it into a city scale neon sign. Nuage Vert is a communal event for the area of Ruoholahti, which anticipates esoteric cults centred on energy and transforms an active power plant into a space for art, a living factory. In tandem, as a reversal of conventional roles whereby the post-industrial factory is turned into space for culture, Kaapeli (the cultural factory) becomes the site of operation and Salmisaari (the industrious factory) becomes the site of spectacle.
