Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design is putting all work and programs on hold indefinitely.

We consider it impermissible to carry on business as usual in the present situation while lives in Ukraine are being lost.

Since its foundation, the Institute’s work has been focused on researching cities and developing ideas for a planetary future. While this mission remains essential, for a productive conversation about the future, there needs to be peace.

Establishing dialogue and cessation of hostilities in Ukraine is the single most important goal right now.

Strelka Institute stands in solidarity with everyone pleading for an immediate end to this armed conflict.

Kerem Ozan Bayraktar: Strands

Strands is a project by artist Kerem Ozan Bayraktar for the Busan Sea Art Festival 2021. The mixed-media installation in a small fishing tent forms a mysterious habitat that immerses us into the dark, labyrinthine world of eels. Through Strands, the artist not only experiments with the possibility of redesigning the ideological hierarchy between humans and non-humans, but also the interrelations among inorganic objects, living bodies, and digital media.

In The Revenge of the Real, Benjamin Bratton envisions a new positive biopolitics that recognizes that governance is literally a matter of life and death. He argues that instead of thinking of biotechnologies as something imposed on society, we must see them as essential to a politics of infrastructure, knowledge, and direct intervention. In this way, we can build a society based on a new rationality of inclusion, care, and prevention. Strelka Mag publishes an excerpt from The Revenge of the Real.

"Working really hard, any of us can maybe cut our carbon footprint by 10 or 20 percent, but we will not get to zero. We just can’t, because it’s embodied in the goods we buy, the food we need, and everything else. So we really need policy change, and technology change, to get to a place where we can at least have some hope of limiting climate change."

All Under Heaven: Sovereignty and Infrastructure After Globalization

The dominant model of global governance, carrying an imprint of Euro-Atlantic political culture, is being contested today by China’s vision for the world order, embodied in the Belt and Road Initiative. The logics and dynamics of these competing models of globalism are obviously different, but what is their standing with respect to the planet—the underlying “thing” they aim to organize? Are there any hints of an alternative model of planetary governance that would successfully address the problems that resist containment within nation states? And, most importantly: could the infrastructures that are already in place—physical, legal, and digital—be used for more innovative purposes, accommodating collective decisions about planetary governance?

THE TERRAFORMING RESEARCH: PEAK FACE

THE TERRAFORMING RESEARCH: PEAK FACE

Terraforming is the process of intelligence transforming its surroundings at the scale of the planet. Peak Face proposes that the terraforming has a period that has been marked by an abundance of faces. The face started out as an evolutionary adaptation that collected sensory organs at the front-ends of animals. Its period of relevance began around the Cambrian Explosion (~541 mya) and has lasted until now. From this perspective, the face was a platform for changing the environment long before it became an indicator of human identity. Since the facial age has a determinate starting date, we can anticipate that it’s also going to end at some point in the future. It may even be that we are at the threshold of a post-facial age of the terraforming, where facelessness and alternative media of social cognition (or intelligence) become increasingly important in the reshaping of the surface of the Earth. This provocation covers the origins of the facial age of the terraforming; the ways in which the strange collection of sensory organs at the front-ends of most animal species has shaped the Earth, and why the face’s role may be about to change.

THE TERRAFORMING YEAR THREE THEMES: ASTROPOLITICS

If geopolitics is defined by the organization of terrestrial States, Astropolitics is and will be defined by the organization of Earth’s atmosphere, its orbital layers, and what lies just beyond. Today these are drawn by satellites, science and surveillance, but the political challenges of this century will be nothing if not planetary in scope and so that scope will itself be politicized. But how so? There is no Planetarity without Extraplanetarity: to truly grasp the figure of our astronomic perch is a Copernican trauma by which the ground is not grounding but a gravitational plane, and the night sky is not the the heavens but a time machine showing us light from years before the evolution of humans. For this, the archaic distinction between ‘down here’ and ‘up there’ also fractures. Terrestrial planetarity and extraterrestrial planetarity situate not a metaphysical inside/outside but a living astronomical continuum, and because this the contemporary political renunciation of “space” as a “fantasy” will do less to prevent it wholesale exploitation than it will do to guarantee it. Terraforming has always meant more than *terra firma*; it always adheres to exploration and composition of stacked and intermingling layers, from the sub-oceanic up to the Karman line and beyond.

TTF 2021 — BORDERS OF ZATO

THE TERRAFORMING RESEARCH: BORDERS OF ZATO

In the middle of the twentieth century at the beginning of the Cold War, the USSR started the development of new kinds of cities: closed, military governed research centers known as ZATOs. Based on the case of their enclosure, this project reconsiders city borders and designs new bordering techniques.

Initially, ZATOs were united by one goal—the creation of the atomic bomb. Despite a regime of secrecy, ZATOs formed industrial nuclear clusters and an interconnected scientific network. The growth of this network could be seen both as a planned strategic aim of the USSR and as the formation of a giant multi-nuclear organism with a distributed cognition system. But how could closed cities be connected to anything? We expose this paradoxical complexity of ZATOs borders by bringing different notions of “enclosure/openness” from cybernetics and ecology. The further we explore ZATOs, the less information about them we have. Missing data about the travel routes of scientists between ZATOs or the construction of the wall reveals fundamental premises about the way we think about borders. We introduce the notion of bordering cascades and temporal vortices to describe not just the closed world of ZATOs, but various spectra of past and future planetary cities.

"The pandemic has revealed the role of gaming platforms as our non-human friends and companions that allow us to safeguard ourselves, our environments and networks as well as our familiar ways of life. This new aspect of videogaming is captured by the term ‘metaescapism.’ Just like metamodernism, which takes a detached perspective on the tension between modernism and postmodernism, metaescapism goes beyond both escapism and postescapism. In other words, metaescapism is a form of escapism that is intrinsically antiescapist."

THE TERRAFORMING YEAR THREE THEMES: ARTIFICIAL ENVIRONMENTS

A viable Terraforming, supporting a rational and equitable organization of planetary life, depends on the design of microenvironments for specific purposes: dwelling, production, preservation, etc. The artificial ecology of the city represents a densely articulated pattern of all of these at once, extending from central cores to regional landscapes and circulation pathways. It usually does so, however, in ways that are far from being ecologically rational. Instead of giving shape to structures of expenditure, “Architecture” must now instead give form to systems of material organization, human and non-human, living and nonliving. The constitution of minimum viable (and maximum viable) environments draws on new vocabularies of programming, zoning, siting, habitation, mobilization, preservation, delimiting, of closed loops and open loops, first cities and final cities.

"Terraforming is a bigger idea than climate response. One that basically takes responsibility for human agency in the Anthropocene, at the largest and most sophisticated scales at which it can be exercised. This includes taking responsibility for the fact that this agency cannot be ceded, because even if that were a good idea (which it isn’t) there’s no way to engineer a global, consensual ceding." —Venkatesh Rao on a technological sublime for the Anthropocene.
