RELATIONSCAPE

In collaboration with Studio ThinkingHand and Age of Biology

Berliner Hauptbahnhof, January 2018

 

I consist of a multitude;

Individual, interdependent organs,

cells, organisms, microbes, bacteria and fungi,

that have very fortunately decided to work together

on continuously co-creating the holobiont entity,

I think of as me.

Intricately woven

into the fabric of cross-species

interconnectedness

spanning from my own body

to the entire planet.

And beyond.

How to grasp this?

To observe, engage with,

question, merge and wonder/wander

along with and among my fellow beings

of all kinds

In an ever growing relationscape

 

A sym-bio-poietic venture into the realm of biology understood as a co-creational mode of exploring, divulging and opening a dialogue with the fundamental other-than-human entities of our world. The piece shows and interrelates four different approaches or perspectives onto the delicacy of the cosmos, beyond the mere human capacity and frame; cultivation, archiving, mimicking and merging.
