Beschrijving

During Thursday Night Live! Terraforming Earth Jaya Klara Brekke and Jay Springett will discuss the implications of blockchain technology and renewable energy, as the basis for the development of a parallel, alternative economic atmosphere, as the primary prerequisite for maintaining the habitability of Earth.

Terraforming Earth kicks off a series of lectures and design labs about twenty-first-century society. The premise is that political and economic systems should be conceived and designed in a radically different way in order to create an optimum environment for an ecology of plants, animals and other organisms, people and machines. An important complicating factor in this scenario is that the feasibility of new systems is tested in the ‘market’, while the way the ‘market’ is organised is responsible for the succession of crises currently affecting planet Earth.

Jaya Klara Brekke

Jaya Klara Brekke is a British artist and researcher, currently working on a PhD on the political construction of blockchain applications. She will discuss attempts to programme utopian organisational forms in the blockchain and other political projections. Could blockchains play a role in the maintenance of ‘the commons’ and strengthen the positions of vulnerable human and non-human players in society?

Jay Springett

Jay Springett is a writer, theorist, promoter of DIY culture and editor of Solarpunks. Solarpunk is a subgenre of science fiction premised on the separation of economies from fossil fuels. Solarpunk explores what free energy sources and decentralised energy infrastructure could mean for future society.
