Coven Intelligence Program: Revolutionary Ecologies of Work Between Plants and Machines

The Coven Intelligence Program (formerly APRIORI) is a techno-botanical coven that cultivates revolutionary ecologies of work between plants and machines. Our research suggests that this alliance has a history reaching back to 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. In collaboration with Efrén Cruz Cortés,  and Suzanne Husky.
