Natasha Tontey explores the present and future of non/human networks in Pest to Power / Hama Memberkati. The web experience centers around the cosmos of the cockroach, an animal from which humans have much to learn. As a species that has and will survive extinction events and epochal transformations, Tontey's work introduces the cockroach as a rich source of alternative concepts of nonhuman intelligence and knowledge systems. Her quasi-science-fictional quest celebrates the idea of an ecocentric kinship urging humans to an act of unlearning in the process of thinking and modeling the (AI) systems of our future.
