TeleAgriCulture

A Cloud/Crowd Data Network for Creative Cultivation

Our mission

TeleAgriCulture offers a community platform, providing a crowd/cloud data exchange network to promote a more sustainable engagement with food, agricuture and ecology, through creative innovation, community engagement and scientific education
We call this  Tele-Agri-Culture!

ABOUT US

The TeleAgriCulture Platform is an analog and digital community platform designed for any size agricultural scenario, aimed at eveyrone from hobbyists and home gardeners, to farmers, creative technologists, artists, innovation experts and organistaions. We facilitate access to environemental data and data entry from discrete living systems in our network and enocourage participation in food production, supply chains and communal ecologocial cultures. Combining our range of products and services with artist/innovators in residence and our own projects, we aim to promote self-sufficiency and better empathy through participation.

Conceived at the MIT Community Bio-SUmmit (US) in 2018, TeleAgriCulture was further developed at Cutlivamos Cultura (PT) and V2_ Lab (NL) in 2019 and we relocated to our current home base in Linz (AT) in early 2020. In our three years of operation we have exhibited and presented our projects mutliples times including at Ars Electronica, V2_ ArtSpace Sydney, Kunstuniversiät Linz and Universität für Angewandte Kunst Wien. We won the Vienna Design Week Urban Food Design Challenge in 2020, the Ö1 Repairing the Future Award in 2021 and were selected to take part in the Creative Europe MakersXChange Hyper Global Hyper Local Project. We have also been nominees for the S.T.A.R.T.S Prize and the Digital Communiteis Golden Nica in 2020.
 
Currently we work with several cultural associations  including Stadtwerkstatt, Halfbit.org, Donautiks, Schwemmland and marart.org and are always open to new partners and collaborations.

Micro-Farming Kits

We design, develop and consult on a vast range of approaches that are suitable for any agricultural scenario, including in the home and in farms, rivers/waterways, gardens, oceans, rooftops and urban settings for all climates and environmental conditions

IoT Sensing Kits

We design and develop robust IoT sensing kits that are adaptable for any environemtal sensing project, no matter how simple, complex or creative. We network these using mobile technologies with a focus on individual rights to privacy.

Creative Cultivation & Art

We facilitate the development of art, design and novel creative projects for communicating gathered data and sourced/created information from the project, to better communicate ecologies and increase empathy in cultural settings.

Apps

We develop and assist the development of applications that facilitate the uploading of data, tutorials, crowd/cloud contributions, data entry and viewing, including machine learning based troubleshooting and optimisation of individual agri-nodes. We also are developing our TeleAgriCulture App

Nutrients

We are developing a range of specific solutions, that optimise nutrients at a molecular/bacterial level, through machine learning, in order to build more robust organisms and ecosystems. Through various data science, biorefinery and tradtional/domestic approaches we work from microbial to human scale to optimise nourishment and value.

Reconfigure

We do all this to reconfigure how we access and engage with ecology, agriculture and creativity for a more sustainable future together. TeleAgriCulture offers a platform for important global issues to be explored and addressed. Most importantly, we want to engage the public with ecological creativity and innovation , using food as our interface to do so.
