The Living Stream

Everytime you use the internet you interact with a complex, invisible, living, breathing ecosystem. From scorching server farms, to leaky data clouds, to the fibreoptic cables at the base of the ocean - all converge into the live stream. In this gripping radio nature documentary we take you on a journey through the natural world of these unnatural creations. Discover field recordings of information-munching creatures, web-hosts and sembiotes, and farmers raising crops of harvestable data. We invite you to take a dip in the stream to find out what role you have to play in this fascinating cycle of artificial life.
