our discussion list has gone quiet
this article caught my attention

The Forest That Walks: Digital Fieldwork and Distributions of Site
Jennifer Gabrys1 Abstract Walking is a practice that often centers
humans as moving and experiencing subjects. Whether on solitary
rambles or in collective social and political engagements, people are
central to understanding places on the move. However, multiple
organisms and environments are also involved in moving practices. This
article decenters human movement to ask: How does the forest walk? In
a time when forest sites might also be inaccessible to multiple people
who are remote from forest locations, this article further considers
how digital fieldwork becomes a way to tune into moving forests and
the relations they activate and sustain. Digital technologies
differently constitute and mobilize environments in ways that can have
consequences for how forests and people move, and for how
environmental change is configured and addressed.

The illustrated principles of Nuovo Abitare

Some time ago we gave a keynote presentation to Cumulus' Rome gathering
called Design Cultures, about the principles of what we're calling Nuovo
Abitare which, in our definition, is a substantial part of our contemporary
condition, in which so many of our rights and freedoms depend on data and
computation.

The keynote became an article which you can find here:

https://xdxd-vs-xdxd.medium.com/the-illustrated-principles-of-nuovo-abitare-5f2e63bbb9fc

We have described some principles for Nuovo Abitarre, and they are shown in
the article through a series of practical projects that implement them in
some way

We would really like to open discussions about these definitions and
principles, also because around October we will be opening the Nuovo
Abitare Foundation in Rome, and there might be chances for collaboration if
you're interested

Thank you all for the kind attention
Salvatore Iaconesi

Sorry for x-posting...

Piksel21
November 18-21 2021
Bergen, Norway

Deadline September 1st
Piksel21 is scheduled for November 18-21 2021.

Dear friends,

we are glad to announce the open call for projects to Piksel Festival
2021 in the hope that the Covid-19 vaccinations makes it possible for
some artists to travel in November when the festival takes place.

We are aware that the vaccination is not evenly distributed in every
country and therefore we will keep the hybrid format and do a double
call.

One is for artists who can travel to Bergen. Please check the rules to
enter Norway here:
https://www.helsenorge.no/en/coronavirus/international-travels The
rules will change in the next months.

The other one is for artists (who can not travel to Bergen) whose
artworks can be presented either virtually/online (Mozilla Hubs,
PikselSavers, online concerts, presentations and workshops) or
physically at the exhibition where the Piksel technical team will
follow the artists instructions to setup the works.

Please feel free to submit your projects to anyone of the open tracks:
Presentations, workshops, concerts, PikselSavers and installations.

Deadline is 1st of September.
Please use the online submit form at: https://pretalx.com/piksel21/cfp

Piksel21 is supported by the Municipality of Bergen, Arts Council
Norway, Vestland fylkeskommune and others.

more info: www.piksel.no

Piksel is an international festival for electronic art and
technological freedom. Part workshop, part festival, it is organised in
Bergen, Norway, and involves participants from more than a dozen
countries exchanging ideas, coding, presenting art and software
projects, doing workshops, performances and discussions on the
aesthetics and politics of art and free technologies.

Makes me think of the questions raised by the artist Marija Bozinovska
Jones:

1) in her contribution to 'Playbour ? Work, Pleasure, Survival', a 2018
exhibition at Furtherfield gallery in London
(https://www.furtherfield.org/playbour-work-pleasure-survival/);

2) in a related interview with Regine Debatty, ?Treebour: Do We Pay
Trees Fairly For the Immaterial Labour They Perform For Us??, We Make
Money Not Art, August 6, 2018
(https://we-make-money-not-art.com/treebour-do-we-pay-trees-fairly-for-the-immaterial-labour-they-perform-for-us/).


Her questions include: should we pay trees for the immaterial labour
they perform for us?

One issue for me would be: does the asking of such questions risk
involving us in imposing (democratic?) political and legal strictures
that are designed for humans onto trees and plants? In paying trees for
their labour and giving plants the vote would we be maintaining and
reinforcing the modernist ontological separation between human and
nonhuman or destablizing it?

Dear all,
what better way for me to participate to this current discussion by
presenting the next step of the Antitesi project.

https://www.he-r.it/antitesi-wisteria-furibonda-and-nuovo-abitare/

We will be presenting the new artwork and research on june 15th in Turin
and online (if you are around I'd like to see you!), trying to establish
new human and nonhuman ecosystems and cosmologies of thought, emotion,
sensibility, solidarity, collaboration.

What better way to start than from a love story between an AI and a plant,
and from an open source toolkit which will allow any plant to become an
Antitesi.

Let's keep the discussion active and if you'd like to participate in any
way: we'd love to!

kind wishes
Salvatore

Dear Roger, Yasminers

Thanks for inviting me to the discussion.

Firstly, Stefano Mancuso points out that intelligence (or his controversial
neurobiology term),
of the plants doesn't 'need' a brain. Of course, we need to define what
intelligence is, and I think of 'a capacity to adapt to a novel situation'.

Regarding architecture, I have been taught as an apprentice in a studio in
the late 1980's and early 1990's (I dont' practice anymore since 2011) in
Switzerland. I mention it because there was(is) a school focusing on
organizing circulations/life around humans beings versus an architecture as
'graphic design' or 'sculpture', and was taught with the former (based on
humanistic approach). So, I believe in an architecture which organize the
life of (humans?) beings, or to push it forward in organizing life at this
point of our terrestrial biosphere. That would be my metaphor.

In term of hybrid examples of architecture and plants/nature/organisms, the
first example relates to the possibilities to includes more green/trees in
the construction. In Milan there is an attempt by Boeri's architect to
includes trees
https://www.stefanoboeriarchitetti.net/project/bosco-verticale/
Still, I think this is a kind of marketing coup. Let's not forget that
architecture serves the power/politics. Instead I would look into his other
project in China https://createdigital.org.au/china-city-home-trees-people/

Another take would be from https://www.xtuarchitects.com/eco-city, which I
find fascinating because they specifically speak of the city as an
ecosystem (pushing it the idea of possible worms based architecture eating
trash). Such ecosystem doesn't focus on sensors and 'smart' cities (which I
find problematic in term of control/surveillance).

Recycling urban architecture is another take like the well known New York
high line https://www.thehighline.org/ or the MFO park in Z?rich (a former
Machine factory)
https://www.ignant.com/2020/02/13/mfo-park-zurich-switzerland/

Moreover, the story of botanical gardens are of particular interest because
they relate to a period
of colonization from the European continent, and is problematic in term of
decolonization. During the latest Laser Nomad
https://ubqtlab.org/2021/04/22/laser-nomad-bellinzona-utopia-of-the-landscape/
we were in the park of an old Villa in Switzerland, where the trees were
imported, and we started to discuss the idea of Nomad trees.

All the very best
LUca

yasminers

at the end of June Jonathon Keats will be working with us on
his ideas for how to re-invent democracy to confront the coming
disasters provoked by climate change- Jonathon's provocation is to figure
out how to give the plants a vote

the US government has just appointed a new Science Director of the Department
of Energy : https://www.aip.org/fyi/2021/soil-scientist-asmeret-berhe-picked-lead-doe-science-office

She recently published Ten simple rules for building an antiracist lab
V. Bala Chaudhary ,Asmeret Asefaw Berhe Published: October 1, 2020
https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1008210

Perhaps we could develop ten simple rules for combating the anti-plant
ism that developed
during the pandemic. Millions of plants died in empty offices during
lockdowns because
no-one watered them.

Is survival of plant species is as important in our ecologies as the
survival and well being of humans ?
then they are stakeholders and should have a vote ? or maybe we need
to redesign democracy itself
since it has failed to prevent disastrous climate change ?
