In 2016 the Aerocene Foundation was invited to Exhibition Road for an interdisciplinary artistic project co-produced by members of the Exhibition Road Cultural Group: a partnership of the leading cultural and educational institutions in London, among them Serpentine Galleries, Imperial College London and The Natural History Museum. Between October and December 2016, the Aerocene Foundation activated a collaborative research platform between Exhibition Road members and wider communities by organizing two hackathons and the ‘Aerocene Campus’ in which participants engaged in debates on metabolic, social and environmental dimensions of the Aerocene epoch.

During this period, experts as well as developers, designers, artists, data scientists, creative technologists, atmospheric scientists, musicians, engineers, social scientists and geographers gathered to develop the conceptual and practical framework of Aerocene’s methods in order to support fundamental research on several key areas: the diversity of life in the air, the collection of cosmic material, the sensory and sonic exploration of the atmosphere and multispecies encounters in the rainforest. Participants were asked to prototype innovative user scenarios for Aerocene flights, including mashups with other data sources, to develop the technology able to locate the position of Aerocene Explorer’s landing, to forecast the Aerocene Explorer’s trajectories, and to study the principles of biostratigraphy in order to understand (and in turn, create) more equitable and sustainable futures…
