Futura Trōpica

STATUS: Active

Initiated by Juan Pablo García Sossa in 2020, Futura Trōpica is an intertropical decentralized network of grass-root local networks for lateral exchange of local resources and other forms of Knowledges, Designs and Technologies. It plays with the narrative of the Wood Wide Web in reference to the way trees are interconnected, communicate with each other, and redistribute nutrients with the help of fungi as mycellium. The network makes use of the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) protocol running over a VPN to privately connect rhizomes in Bogotá, Kinshasa and Bengaluru.
