The River Speaks Curriculum, Teaching Material by Melika Alipour Leili

Home > Winners > #71801


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The River Speaks

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Curriculum, Teaching Material

INSPIRATION:
For years we have been separating our beings as humans from 'the nature'. The ways we articulate and design around the threats of climate change often maintain a dangerous distinction between environmental health and human existence. We act accordingly, separated by scales of time and cultural notions of the discrete elements of the earth. Considering the increasingly complicated relationship between humans and non-humans we saw a new space for design to address this inter-relational space.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This project is an attempt to lay out a path using design process for action in the Capitalocene. It is a set of lesson plans that challenge traditional notions of the nonhuman. They prompt students to speculate on possible new definitions, institutions, perceptions relationships, rituals and technologies that might be needed in a reality that recognizes nonhuman agency; reflect on the cultural shifts that might happen (both good and bad); then backcast onto our contemporary condition.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
In the midst of climate change, we call on design to take a nonhuman turn—to recognize the existential value of a nonhuman-centered agenda. Design should both initiate critical reflection of its anthropocentric ethics and bolster the most "public debate"—where the ratio of those affected to those making decisions becomes less extreme, and therefore less human. Using speculation and embedding it within human institutions, we believe design can articulate alternate, preferable worlds in material form and suggest steps toward them. In the midst of such complicated posthuman politics, we want to work toward an ecocentric mindset using narratives, material, and culture. But by making tangible a world in which nonhuman agency is recognized differently, by suggesting alternatives, we seek to challenge modern naturalism and investigate an ecology from other perspectives.
