BEYOND FICTIONAL OPPOSITIONS —  Integrating Polarities



Planet Earth is a subject of rights. Even though, still prevails the Anthropocentric view that only human beings are endowed with subjectivity and dignity.

However, the entangled view of life teaches us that Earth is an intelligent self-regulating superorganism capable of maintaining life. We, humans, are also this living being, intertwined with Earth's living systems.

This is not mysticism, it is science and also magic. And implicates social, cultural and environmental issues. To take care of Earth is to take care of us. To take care of these complexities of "us", is also an opportunity to sustain the health and inventiveness of life on Earth, within Earth.

That's the worldview that inspires everything I do as a human animal and artist. I like to imagine a world where human and non human dimensions coexists.
