Calafou, postcapitalist ecoindustrial community


Calafou – the Ecoindustrial Postcapitalist Colony – is a settlement of around three dozen people in the Catalonian countryside. Concrete pylons standing 20 meters high hold a highway passing above the wild forest valley, where hall after dilapidated hall of industrial ruins stretch along the banks of a contaminated stream nurturing a twisted yet lively ecosystem. Echoes of unseen, passing cars blend into the organic static of wildlife, punctuated by beats booming from the hacklab speakers.
