Timothy Morton, University of California Davis [Ecology without Nature and The Ecological Thought]
on The Time of Hyperobjects: New Directions for Ecological Philosophy
on Reflux: From Environmental Flows to Environmental Objects
What is ecological thinking and how does it transform the way we understand materials, objects and environments? Taking off from Timothy Morton’s concept of hyperobjects, this HotHouse asks how we might radically rework ecological thought and curate (care for) hyperobjects.
Participants are invited to brainstorm about a future exhibition project on hyperobjects for the new gallery complex at the College of Fine Arts.
