Care merchandise are a part of The Distributed Web of Care initiative, a project exploring the Distributed Web as a peer-to-peer alternative web that prioritizes collective agency and individual ownership of data and code. The networks which dominate the world today define user in relation to data collection, control and financial accessibility. In critical opposition, the Distributed Web of Care, focuses on people and personhood – minorities, those who aren’t normatively abled and those who are less visible – emphasizing one’s integrity, security and privacy. The project asks us to unlearn the assumption that technological innovation and automation is an inherent good, asking instead how we can code to care and code carefully. The entire profit of hoodie and t-shirt sales will fund the Distributed Web of Care fellowship this summer.
