This thematic issue of Šum is published in dialogue with the pilot edition of ARIA (Algo-Rhythmic Ideation Assembly). ARIA is a summer school designed as a role-playing game that takes place through the lens of a fiction-theory narrative to explore ways of imagining new possibilities for what our world can be in the time of changing planetary ecology. ARIA is developed by Tjaša Pogačar and Brandon Rosenbluth, produced by Zavod Projekt Atol in collaboration with Šum and organised in the framework of the More-than-Planet project.
