Video screening at Knowledge Cultures Ecologies

For Knowledge/Culture/Ecologies 2017:

“In 2016, we conducted a socially-engaged project that explored grieving the loss of non-human species and ecological habitats that are passing away during this historic, geologic, cultural moment, and indeed if this is possible, considering late capitalism prevents a reckoning with relational ecologies beyond-the-human. Collected natural materials implicated in the adoption of sedentary agriculture and settler-colonization became documents of ecological transformation. Participants were invited to handle them while telling stories of connection and disconnection. At dawn, we buried our materials.

For Knowledge/Culture/Ecologies, we propose an experimental video that expands ideas around historic natures, grief and the more-than-human, the temporalities of living, dying, yet-to-live — weaving footage, text and images from our event.”
