An Intricate Ensemble
2020.3.5

My master's thesis for Rhode Island School of Design's brand new Nature-Culture-Sustainability Studies program is now available in print form RISD's Fleet Library, and as a free download from RISD Digital Commons:


An Intricate Ensemble: The Art-Science of an Ecological Imaginary for the Anthropocene Epoch


The upshot in a nutshell: practices and frameworks that emphasize and enhance collaboration, spontaneity, and care, in defying convention, contain the potential to subvert it.


The impossible can be realized through creative acts: we can "know what the possible feels like because we know ourselves to be its creators" (Arturo Fallico, Art and Existentialism, 1962).


This is a dynamic, participatory occasion.
