COMMONS & COMMUNITY
We, and everything on this planet, live interdependent lives. While we might live very different lives, in very different worlds, we are fully dependent creatures. For us, this shared dependency is the COMMONS. The commons is not a simply space or a physical object -- but a set of practices and relationships that cross worlds and species to allow for all life to be possible -- thus to speak of the commons is to speak of community -- multi-species community. Models of scarcity, private ownership, development and commodification undermine both the commons and community. our interest is in the collective production of new forms of commons and community
We have been working on a model of Multispecies Commons. We developed a test ecology in collaboration with Ptizer College:
Other recent work includes texts, workshops, podcasts, and design proposals. We will be uploading this material in the spring of 2021. Stay tuned.
