Feral Automated System “ULTB-1”
The project outlines the interconnections between vegetal and computing systems in a vein of current ecological crises and diverse narrations about possible futures in the epoch of the anthropocene. Excavating the soviet narrations on building of the common world, which embraces not only humans, but primarily animals, plants and machines, we rethink the idea of communism in terms of “more than the human”.

In the early 1940s the construction of the common body was committed to plants and machines, resulting in two parallel projects of networking. Feral Automated System elaborates an alternative scenario where plants and machines actively participate in a joint creation of common networks connecting together different creatures. Sociality of greenery is based on the principle of radical openness to the Other: it is how plants create hybrids and interspecies alliances, increasing biodiversity. Plants use adaptive networking with interchangeable agents and dynamic mechanisms such as roots, seeds, tendrils, fluent sexuality, etc.—all this forms a feedback system.

Using this knowledge we will create a network composed both from vegetal and digital parts that include chips and internet protocols along with phytomining technology and plant-based computing architectures.
