From Space Technology to Space Ecology
Abstract : In times of rapid environmental change, which can render today's lively environments on Earth extreme, we cultivate capacities that help us survive; as outer space has taught us, we can only do this collectively, with the complex networks that compose ecologies. The oeconomus, the human-machine, has to also begin thinking and seeing itself through and with the oikos. Such a salto mortale requires a systematic and persistent effort and is the reason why the search for ways through which to include environmental agents in the production of art is so important.
