The Alien Clone Factory at Booth 22 @platformsproject

There are many different visions of what makes a good Interstellarcene, but they have in common a viewpoint that optimism is needed to be able to engage successfully with the societal and political change needed in the Interstellarcene. One particularly prominent vision, promoted by the Alien Clone Factory, is embodied in the concept of ecomodernism, which proposes an embrace of high-technology solutions to tackle the challenge of the Interstellarcene, such as nuclear power, genetically modified organisms, intensified agricultural production, and possibly geoengineering. This is coupled with actions that encourage “decoupling” of life forms from nature, including facilitating migration to cities and urbanization, and rewilding of abandoned agricultural regions.
