Currently looking into how our relation to technology is shaped by its interfaces.
Mycorrhizal networks are mutually beneficial symbioses between plant roots and certain types of fungi – forming a beautifully complex infrastructure (for communication and the exchange of nutrients) that is alive, able to evolve and adapt to its environment.
Can we merge parts of our inanimate cable infrastructure with existing mycorrhizal networks to form a new symbiosis – to turn our infrastructure into a living organism that can grow, evolve and maintain itself? Can we integrate our technologies better with the natural landscape?
Instead of keeping ourselves busy with old modernist utopias like ‘smart cities’, can we envision different modalities of living together with our surrounding ecologies?
