As a collaborator of the art collective known as spurse, I helped to construct an install this installation at the ICA. From the catalogue:
"Before imagining a politics of sustainability, we need to first understand what exactly is the possibility of the sustainable whatsoever. How do events emerge, stabalize, and then transform, mutate, or rupture towards other distinct events? To understand the radicalness of possibility inherent in the sustainable this installation posed an experimental zone of investigation that traces out the complex interweaving of agencies involved in specific contested terrains. Most theories of nature imagine the position of the human as an artificial element outside of and in contrast to nature. But this produces inexplicable paradoxes of the natural versus the artificial, nature versus culture, man quasi-stabilization, and rupture where there is no clear demarcation between any species, event, or territory."
spurse is an open-ended group of individuals and organizations that work together as a type of experimental consultation service towards the development of new forms of engagement, practices and knowledges.
