World Wide Workshop: The Craft of Noticing

Research profile seminar

Nicolas Cheng's final seminar before public defense.

Discussant: Dr. Åsa Ståhl, artist and researcher at the Linnaeus University.

For the 90% seminar, Nicolas will discuss Donna Haraway's suggestion of chthulucene as a more complex, urgent, and inclusive term than Anthropocene; and will refer to her discussion of the principle of sympoiesis (making together with). He will use his recent research project Craft Remediation as a lens for reflecting on how the praxis of care can be understood in a craft context through a hands-on permaculture approach to phytoremediation.

In his artistic research, Nicolas has attempted to shift his relationship to materials - to move away from a linear extract-produce-discard model in favor of a more sustainable circular approach using a harvest-care-remediate model whereby alternative materials are derived from postindustrial leftovers and waste. In this shift, the idea of care is explored not only to nonhumans in the natural environment to materials and plants, but it is also extended through practice-sharing and community building, to its in habitants, and its "resources". His underlying quest is to better understand his own personal role and response-ability as a maker in an entangled world.
