NO HOW

Lets imagine that we can communicate beneath the surface. We start all together as one from a biological perspective of a rhizome condition where we imagine ourselves as the roots in the forests, networking with each other using plant intelligence and deep under ground correlations.

 

To imagine utopia we can make a huge general assumptions about it. But we can also make ourselves a small-scale utopian collective and try to explore where this particular discourse is heading to. Is our artificial utopian family vigorous enough to provide a sufficient experiment. We hope it is?
