Under the open sky with terra0.org
O valleys wide, o heights,
o beautiful, green forest,
you, of my joy and birth pangs the dwelling!
Out there, always betrayed,
rushes the wild world:
encircle me now with your bow,
you green vault

Warehouse Industries featured terra0 within their column “en plein air”.

“EXHIBITION #11: DARK HABITATS DARK ECOLOGY”! terra0 will be shown as a part of an exhibition at SPEKTRUM Berlin. 08. June - 11. June 2017

Human advancements and ecology are not sharing the same nature. The planet did not evolve all those Eras influenced only by our conceptions, and will not do that as well when the truly post-human will follow the post-dinosaurs. But today, the human factor is introduced in the ecological continuum through conditions exploiting resources dictated by geo-economical and geo-political dynamics: not privileging us above the way we think about life, rather happening on its own way.

2017-05-20 Furtherfield Gallery, London

Showing terra0 in the NEW WORLD ORDER Exhibition together with Jaya Klara Brekke, Pete Gomes, Rob Myers, Primavera De Filippi of O’Khaos, Lina Theodorou and xfx (aka Ami Clarke) in London at Furtherfield Gallery. Saturday 20 May until Sunday 25 Jun 2017

A mysterious and controversial technology is among us. The Blockchain underpins digital currencies and makes possible dramatic new conceptions of global governance and economy, that could permanently enrich or demote the role of humans – depending on who you talk to.

A self-owning forest with ideas of expansion, a self-replicating android flower, a tale of lost innocence, a DIY money making rig, a Hippocratic Oath for software developers, a five minute marriage contract; this exhibition presented by Furtherfield shows us life with blockchain technologies – through artworks by Jaya Klara Brekke, Pete Gomes, Rob Myers, Primavera De Filippi of O’Khaos, Terra0, Lina Theodorou and xfx (aka Ami Clarke).

Imagine a world in which responsibility for many aspects of life (reproduction, decision-making, organisation, nurture, stewardship) are mechanised and automated. Transferred, once and for all, from natural and social systems into a secure, networked, digital ledger of transactions and computer-executed contracts.

The artworks in this exhibition envision future world-making by machines, markets and natural processes, free from interference by states and other human institutions.

2017-05-12 FIBER Festival, Amsterdam

What are the values and infrastructures that we humans use to create with the world’s resources? and what alternative value systems can we propose that support a more sustainable and less harmful, integrated relationship? Terra0 offers us a kind of capitalist system that forges new ecologies, by putting a forest on the block chain it effectively hacks the current economic system in an attempt to place nature and capitalism on equal terms, by giving ownership of the forest, to the forest itself. Terra0 stands up to the challenge of merging the two seemingly separate worlds of capital and nature, through the digital infrastructure of the block chain we find that on a planetary scale the virtual and the natural are inseparable.

terra0 will be shown at FIBER Festival from 12 May till 21 May. Looiersgracht 60 Amsterdam
