Kiran Khurana "Atlas of Unsettling Ecologies"

How might we devise a new way of looking and belonging in the wake of destruction that we have propagated, and to honor the vulnerable ecologies that live among our ruins? In grappling with the existential urgencies that arise in this moment of planetary transformation, this atlas looks to mapping the spontaneous economies and ecologies of plastics to reveal the underlying power structures, material culture, and impossible dilemmas that are engaged in unsettling Lagosian ecologies. By slowing down in urgent times, this project arrives at waste landscapes through a grammar of thinking otherwise and noticing plastics as landscape agents.
