Islands may seem closed off from the world, but they are also spaces of movement and relationality. For Kyriaki Goni, the island and insular existence combines isolation and connectivity in ways through which we can rethink the past, present, and future of networks. Referencing networks in the Aegean Sea from antiquity until today, Goni has devised a localized digital network of three nodes, one of which is presented within the exhibition installation. Visitors can use this node to share stories related to the possible future of networks, climate, and population movements. Using fiction as a method for community building, these Networks of Trust are accessible by proximity and indexed as cryptographic hashes on the website of the installation. The offline network is combined with technologies such as P2P and the Interplanetary File System (IPFS) for a distributed data storage resilient to potential censorship and control.
