terra0

I like to think of a cybernetic meadow

«… where mammals and computers live together in mutually programming harmony like pure water touching clear sky.»

abstract

terra0 is an evolving prototype built on the Ethereum network that aims to provide automated ecosystem resilience frameworks. Via instantiating a Decentralised Autonomous Organisation atop areas of land to manage them, terra0 aims to create technologically-augmented ecosystems that are more resilient, and able to act within a predetermined set of rules in the economic sphere as agents in their own right.

It has been exhibited at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition — La Biennale di Venezia, Ars Electronica, Biennale de Lyon, Drugo More, Furtherfield Gallery, Schinkel Pavillon, transmediale and Vienna Biennale, among others.

I like to think of a cybernetic forest

«… filled with pines and electronics where deer stroll peacefully past computers as if they were flowers with spinning blossoms.»

projects

  • Premna Daemon
  • Project about an augmented Premna Microphylla, originally developed for the Proof of Work exhibition at Berlin’s Schinkel Pavillon.
  • Flowertokens
  • An experimental test-case on tokenization and verification of natural assets.

I like to think of a cybernetic ecology

«… where we are free of our labors and joined back to nature, returned to our mammal brothers and sisters, and all watched over by machines of loving grace.»

terra0 Research

We are a group of developers, theorists, and researchers exploring the creation of hybrid ecosystems in the technosphere.

Driven by a keen interest in remote sensing, machine learning, and distributed ledger technology, we develop tools for the management of natural ecosystems and resources via the creation of meshes of interacting decentralized autonomous organisations.

We believe that these key technologies give us the opportunity to rethink existing and ineffective governance and regulatory structures and that they will play a crucial role in creating a sustainable, resilient, and biodiverse future.

Right now, please! It has to be!*
