#47 — experiment

DONNA HARAWAY

 

 

This project is co-edited in collaboration with American artist and philosopher Jonathon Keats whose bold experiments have raised serious questions and put into practice his conviction that the world needs more “curious amateurs,” willing to explore publicly whatever intrigues them in defiance of a culture that increasingly forecloses on wonder and silos knowledge into narrowly defined areas of expertise.

This issue of Antennae explores the rise of interest in art and science collaborations. Partly because of the resonance of the posthuman cyborg in the ontological turn; because of the rise of Bio Art; because of the prominence that multidisciplinarity has acquired in academia; and surely in light of our fraught relationship with our environment and climate change, the intersections between art and science have recently become more complexly de ned by new ethical, political, aesthetic, and poetic registers.

#48 — interface

The interface emerges as an agentially charged field—it reveals itself as a productive material dimension through which our thinking, questions, and assumptions are formed, mapped, shaped, and tested. From this perspective, the interface manifests itself as an artistic material-surface—a creative and reactive field through which we modulate the bandwidth of a perceptual gap—the poetic and philosophical distance between us and the actants and systems we study. Because of its inherent agential potential, the interface is also prone to become an ethical battlefield.

#49 — making nature

 

This issue of Antennae is part of a project informed by the exhibition 'Making Nature: How We See Animals' curated by Honor Beddard at Wellcome Collection (London) in 2016-17. This first installment, 'Making Nature', looks at the construction of nature as a cultural pursuit during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It focuses on issues of visibility and invisibility, both cultural and ecological, to critically appraise the methodological approaches that have defined the philosophies of the discipline.

#50 — remaking nature

 

How can we make people care for the natural world so that they might invest in its preservation? For natural historians of the 19th century, the answer was to kill animals in order to set up gorgeous, dioramas. Today, artists are proposing many different answers to the same question, while finding innovative ways to celebrate biodiversity and promote new conceptions of the natural world at a time of unprecedented environmental crisis.
