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.
into the fabric of cross-species
spanning from my own body
to the entire planet.
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.
