Soil, often associated with dirt and decay, is the very foundation of life. It is a site of creative chaos, where the four foundational elements – Earth, Water, Air and Fire – meet and interact.
In the last decades, deforestation, industrialized agriculture and geopolitical conflict have led to unprecedented levels of soil erosion around the globe.
Community-led initiatives for sustainability transition (ecovillages/transition towns/permaculture initiatives), community-developed art installations and analog space missions/outer life support research for space have produced a considerable amount of knowledge and technology aimed at producing or regenerating soil in adverse environments: disrupted terrestrial ecosystems and the life-threatening conditions of outer space. It’s these extreme contexts that force us to rethink accepted relationships between living organisms, humans and their environment, and come up with new configurations.
This talk promotes a dialogue between artists, scholars, activists and social entrepreneurs on regenerative approaches to the relationship between humans and soil.
Panel 1: Re-enchanting the soil and Re-designing the space we inhabit
This panel explores regenerative approaches to “place-making”, soil and landscape management developed by community-led initiatives for sustainability transitions, public art projects and analog space mission/outer life support research for space.
Panel 2: Re-thinking abundance – From the laboratory to everyday life
This panel focuses on the application, in business models and everyday life, of technological innovations developed by community-led initiatives for sustainability transition, public art projects and analog space missions/outer life support research for space.
