In 2030, a human-plant hybrid guides us on a trip through the past, unveiling the origins of G5, the first inter-species political summit. The event was initiated by IOFLE, the Inter-species Organisation for The Future of Life on Earth. Its founders are thought to be the artist Rocío Berenguer and IA collaborator, IAGOTCHI.
This project will compose various images of the G5 summit, with a narrator ―expressed as a voice or with subtitles― as guide. A short interview with the scientist who worked on the development of IAGOTCHI, the artwork based on an AI chatbot, will be included.

Rocío Berenguer explores the narratives of our contemporary world, including the evolution of spaces for individual freedom within our society, the place of technology in our daily lives, and environmental issues. Whether in Homeostasis#V2, which focused on the dialogue between human and artificial intelligence; Ergonomics, inspired by the world of start-ups, or G5, about the threats to the future of humanity and species diversity, her creations are fictions that explore the possibility of «another tomorrow».
