The landscape of the internet lies in ruin. Relics of a sterile corporate network are slowly consumed by data-fragment dust. Unable to survive in this industrialised desert, eco-systems dwindled and mono-culture gave way to blight.
Now life finds a way..
500 million years ago, towering pillars of lichen claimed land for the first time. The only living thing on an otherwise impenetrable terrain, the prototaxites dissolved the rocks that hosted them to extract the nutrients within, creating soil in the process and leading the way for complex life. Now virtual prototaxites take hold; mycelial exchange re-wilding the internet.
