Artist Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg and Jane Calvert, Professor of Science and Technology Studies at the University of Edinburgh, have collaborated together before – critically ‘investigating synthetic biology’s designs on nature’. Using Growth Assembly (a work that will be shown at Talbot Rice Gallery, by Ginsberg & Sascha Pohflepp) and a small selection of Ginsberg’s previous projects as a springboard, this conversation will question the attitudes we project on to the future and the implications they have for different ecological systems. Rewilding the Future promotes a decentring of human perspectives – in order to avoid continuing the cycle of colonising, industrialising and marketising nature – and the important role art can play in generating different forms of knowledge: in the context of The Normal, something of a toolkit for thinking into post-COVID-19 realities.
