Stolon Mesh Network
2020 - 2023
Stolon Mesh is a community mesh network seeded by 221A that offers free wifi to users in Vancouver’s DTES & Chinatown, and beyond. Developed by artist and 221A Fellow Christina Battle in collaboration with a team of researchers, community liaisons and technologists, Stolon Mesh is a growing network infrastructure with the aim of creating a local-first digital commons that will remain just, caring and responsible to others. The network’s first node is located within the x̱aw̓s shew̓áy̓ New Growth《新生林》garden at 271 Union Street.
