Learning from often marginalised social organisational forms and ways of being to imagine alternative macro-systems.
Hands-on sketch and prototyping of alternative avatars in physical and digital, with an eye to their heritage in costume and ritual.
“Communities are formed and sustained through the sharing of resources and through participation in the governance of the commons, governance that often also involves direct social labor, which in these conditions I call “commoning”. The ongoing fiscal crisis and the deepening of austerity measures, in spite of social resistance, will push communities to come together and reshape themselves through sharing projects such as community gardens, care of children and the elderly, greater participation in schools,[...]. The commons, in other words, increasingly become a necessity of social production.”
