Data Harvest: Combining Insect Production with the Human Workplace
Information is food. In an age of constant data streams and information flows within the city, the digital crop is being harvested more than ever.
Agriculture, once the forefront of human technology, is now required to provide for the citys two key nutrients: food and digital data.
The insect becomes the building block, serving as food source, agricultural tool and hybridised digital sensor. These swarms of living particles, digitally activated by memory tags and sensors, inform an architecture and infrastructure of the new human workplace, generating both physical and digital ecologies of food and data production.
