Biodigital Convergences

The corporate agenda to render nature to binary code


Digitalization is an overwhelming force that is getting increasingly harder to navigate everyday. Corporations are ramping up their efforts to control all living systems by erasing the boundaries between biology and technology. By reducing organic matter to binary code, they are monopolizing massive amounts of data to create digital tools that enhance corporate power through the control of vital knowledge and information. The continuous influx of digital tools and processes merging with our lives is rooted in narratives that suggest that digitalization is the inevitable path of progress, already charted for us by the big tech companies. The Long Food Project rejects this inevitability and instead holds space to discuss and understand the ways that digitalization is impacting our food systems.
