So-called plants at Critical Media Lab, Basel

Tuesday, December 13, 2022

For this presentation, several “computational ecologies of practice” were selected to “feel the borders” of how so-called plants are being made present. The figure of “so-called plants” problematizes the limitations of the ontological category of “plant”, and the isolation it implies. So-called plants questions the various methods that biology, computer science, 3D-modeling or border management put to work to create finite, specified and discrete entities which represent the characteristics of whole species, erasing the nuances of very particular beings.
