On May 4 + 5, 2022 we gathered for the Baukunst Creative Technologist Conference at The Interval at The Long Now–a prominent foundation for long term thinking in San Francisco–to share projects, processes, and new areas of inquiry. Expanding upon his recently published essay, ROLE: CREATIVE DIRECTOR || COMPANY: USA, Reggie James, CEO of Eternal, and Eugene Angelo, Creative Director of ANGELO, engaged in a dialogue about why Mars needs a creative director. They posit that Mars is the only image expansive enough to break us out of the saturation of the internet age, get us off apathy island, and offer design principles for Mars that might help us reimagine Earth.

Baukunst is a collective of creative technologists advancing the art of building companies at the frontiers of technology & design. We build companies. And also — we build the communities, experiences, products, and stories that shape how companies are built. The true art of building lies in setting the right culture and scene for something new and meaningful to begin, grow, scale, and endure.

Ecosystem vs Egosystem

We believe individual genius is over-represented and the complex power of scenes is undervalued. This lies in stark contrast to the egocentric, genius obsession that permeates western technology culture today.

Egosystem < Ecosystem

Today, alongside my partners Tyler Mincey, Matt Thoms, and Axel Bichara, I am proud to announce the launch of Baukunst. Baukunst is a collective of creative technologists advancing the art of building companies at the frontiers of technology and design. We invest in, we build with, and we document the work of the creative technologists of our time.

We invest:

Baukunst makes venture investments in creative technologists at company formation. We are independent minded and invest with conviction. We lead pre-seed rounds, and often invest the full round ourselves.
