A Cloud/Crowd Agricultural Data Network for Artists
TeleAgriCulture offers a community platform for artists, designers, agriculturalists & hobbyists, providing a crowd/cloud data exchange network for information exchange, which we call tele-agriculture.
A range of modular kits are offered that incorporate aquaculture (fish farming), hydroponics (water-based agriculture) & traditional farming. The kits are developed to adapt to a range of geographic locations & ecological conditions & are monitored by custom IoT sensing devices.
These provide real time sensory data from each kit/location, which can be used to optimise agricultural conditions & for artistic production & scientific inqury.
This allows for artists, scientists, flora, fauna and ecosystems to communicate in new, more symbiotic and empathatic ways, merging natural & data systems with social exchange networks, to facilitate art and design. The integration of machine learning further facilitates this bio-digitally convergent platform.
This project was conceived by Julian Stadon at the MIT Global Community Bio Summit 2018, first developed at Cultivamos Cultura, & is supported by V2_ Lab for Unstable Media & marart.org. It is inspired by the recent explosion of agricultural technologies and methods, such as saline, vertical & other future farming innovations.
