Digital Garden — Digital Wilderness — Summer 2016

terra0 is a self-owned forest; an ongoing art project that strives to set up a prototype of a self-utilizating piece of land.

terra0 creates a scenario whereby a forest is able to sell licences to log trees through automated processes, smart contracts and Blockchain technology. In doing so, this forest accumulates capital. A shift from valorization through third parties to a self-utilization makes it possible for the forest to procure its real exchange value, and eventually buy (thus own) itself. The augmented forest, as owner of itself, is in the position to buy more ground and therefore to expand.
