You may remember I spoke at Fiber Festival last year in Amsterdam.

They just released a short 8 minute mini documentary recapping the themes of the festival with interviews with the participants.

It features me talking about Platforms and Solarpunk. I almost sound like I know what I’m talking about.

The idea of terraformation was once the domain of writers and artists. We’re entering a new space race to colonise and terraform the universe. Silicon Valley companies like SpaceX, Google and Planetary Resources are in the front seat. As we edge closer towards inevitable environmental collapse these big tech companies are scrambling to colonise new habitable worlds on distant planets. By shooting a cherry-red Tesla car into space, they shape the future narrative of man in space. But what are we leaving behind on Earth? If today’s technological leaps aren’t improving our natural environments than what legacy will we inherit in worlds abroad?
