Networks of Trust is an assembly of fossil remains of a dwarf elephant and an artificial intelligence system that becomes an allegory for the genesis of networks in the Aegean archipelago and the Mediterranean Sea. Collective existence, connection, encounter and synergies are at the epicentre of this narrative.
The installation aims to expand notions of insular, remote, or localist existence and imagination flourishing from the island (both as reality and metaphor). Using these concepts to touch sharply on the future of networks and connectivity. Challenging regimes of truth in favour of democracies of trust. Here, the Aegean Sea, from its ancient origins to today’s social and economic dynamics, acts as a protagonist through which we can build potential futures to further spaces of movement and relationality. In the installation at SixtyEight visitors can access and use the node on site to share their own stories of amelioration and regeneration promoted by future networks, climate solutions, and mobility justice.
In using fiction as a method for community building, these networks of trust are accessible by proximity to the host server and indexed as cryptographic hashes on the website. The offline network is combined with technologies such as P2P and the Interplanetary File System (IPFS) in order to create a self-organised and distributed data storage system, resilient to potential censorship and control.
