Futura Trōpica Netroots on FLOW

Today, it is still a common belief that tech innovation in the Tropics is a direct legacy of colonial and postcolonial intervention, rather than a manifestation of genuine, blooming interactions between emerging technologies, and endemic practices, and costumes.

Today, it is still a common belief that tech innovation in the Tropics is a direct legacy of colonial and postcolonial intervention, rather than a manifestation of genuine, blooming interactions between emerging technologies, and endemic practices, and costumes.

Futura Trōpica is an InterTropical decentralized network of grass-root local networks for the lateral exchange of local resources and other forms of (endemic) Knowledge, Designs and Technologies. It uses the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) protocol to connect Rhizomes in Bogotá, Kinshasa, and Bengaluru. Each Rhizome is composed of a DIY Local Network in combination with USB based distribution systems.

THE FLOW
»When you hit a wrong note, it’s the next note that you play that determines if it’s good or bad.« — Miles Davis

FLOW (Free, Libre, Open, Wild) Systems & Technologies
After months of investigations and exchange around situated knowledge examining our natural and artificial environments, in this residency Futura Trōpica will have a special focus on further developing our concept of FLOW (Free Libre Open Wild) Systems as a shift from FLOSS (Free Libre OpenSource Software). Systems meant to be mutable, re-appropriable and wild.
