We are strangled by the tentacles of centralized internet infrastructures, both corporate and governmental, almost carceral in their increasingly suffocating demands on our data and diktats designed to manipulate our behavior in online spaces. This is a dream of an internet that privileges individual and community ownership and control, reconfigured through an ethics of care. To illustrate these ideas and make them more accessible and relatable, the practice uses metaphors and draws on alternative knowledge systems, such as indigenous and local practices. In conversation with the community, the work imagines an alternative, more just, and meaningful digital ecosystem for all.
