The following investigation studies the possibility of re-defining the system structure by adopting a rhizomatic approach in which the living collaborate together in writing a new story.
An SYMPOIETIC, QUEER, and TERRAN design method will be applied throughout the process.
Sympoietic is the structure. “Making with”. Drawing from Donna Haraway’s theories, a sympathetic design is a design that creates, takes shape, and exists through connections. An entanglement of lines, balanced and horizontal, of non-linear movements where the story develops and evolves.
Queer is the approach. Oblique, ambiguous, imaginative, else, the nonilluminated side. In order to disrupt the
Terran is the matter. As this earth, and us and all critters dwelling on it. The barycentre sits low, it experiences gravity. Digging, diving into the soil, communicating with its lives.
