I recently spoke with builtin.com about Solarpunk and technology. This article is the result.
It also features other friends and colleagues: Williams, Wilk, Flynn etc.
Check out the full write up here: Solarpunk Is a Tumblr Vibe. It’s Also a Practical Movement
I think every article like this serves as a small speed bump toward solarpunk being co-opted by a big media entity somewhere.
Heres some quotes:
So why, when I ask Jay Springett — longtime co-administrator of solarpunks.net — about what solarpunk looks like in practice, does he talk about an old phone box that was converted into a seed library?
“That wouldn’t be out of place in a solarpunk story,” Springett said. “But also it’s real life”
And for all of solarpunk’s openness toward technology, there are always broader considerations beyond gadgetry, said Springett, who was as eager to discuss the work of rainwater-harvesting designer Brad Lancaster and 3D ocean farmer Bren Smith as he was Scuttlebutt.
