Description

"Conducted by artist duo Debra Solomon and Jaromil Rojo, Entropical is an inquiry into the incentive to produce soil ecology and food at a human scale in an age in which the best value is created by abstract algorithms and computer calculations.

How can we bring these value systems into a direct productive relationship in a time in which intensive computation is valued far more than ecological regeneration? How, for example, can Bitcoin positively affect the rhizosphere, the layer of earth around the roots of plants? And how mycological processes affect and inspire digital systems like a cryptographic blockchain?"
