APRIORI is a research and development group whose mission is to track emerging revolutionary alliances between plants and machines. Our research suggests that this alliance has a history reaching back to at least the 1500s. We use our research to try to understand more deeply the ‘nature’ of intelligence, and how the differences between communication and resource exchange are collapsing. The future of humanity is not at stake, but racist capitalist heteropatriarchy is. Understanding the shifts in, and connections between, nonhuman (both silicon and carbon) labor and lifeways requires long term, interdisciplinary effort.
This project is rhizomatic in nature; all are invited to be part of our distributed Field Team. Field Projects are open to your speculative research; visit our Field:Work page
