In a time marked by the rapidly unfolding climate crisis and looming ecological collapse we are called to reimagine our human existence as relationally entangled with the more-than-human world.
This experimental photographic series tried to apply ontologies of relationality, more-than-human entanglements and co-becomings to photography; to make theory tangible through visual practice.
It is an exploration of what it means to become-with more-than-human others/matter in a relational, interdependent way. At its core, this series focuses on the practice – the process of making these images – more so than any aim to picture the entanglements of humans/more-than-humans. In using alternative photo-processes that employ organic matter/forces (leaves, soil, algae, sunlight, water…) this series explored photography as a sensory, transient and multi-layered becoming-with more-than-human others/matter. As such it aimed to attend and give space to the more-than-human agency at play in the co-creation of these images with the intention to cultivate ethics which are “about responsibility and accountability for the lively relationalities of becoming of which we are a part” (Karen Barad).
