Nice video summarizing the Zooetics workshop last weekend…On Friday, Natalie and I gave lectures, on Saturday we developed future scenarious with a great mix of scientists from Kaunas University of Technology. Let’s conspire with non-humans, as Natalie says!
And here’s the link to the full lecture.
“‘Zooetics’ is a word in progress to explore new ways of engaging human knowledge and research with other forms of life and to imagine designs, prototypes and interfaces for future interspecies ecologies. Zooetics encompasses all life from mammals to mollusks to microbes, and addresses the paradigm shift in science, culture and society proposed in the argument of the Anthropocene. It engages with shifts in contemporary understandings of nature.”
