Narratives of cultivated decay
Human made environment claims to be stable and enduring. The discipline of design claims to plan spheres and characteristics of these environments. Seldomly Decay and unbecomng is concious part of design practice. We introduce a narrative structure to reflect on design potentiality to unbecome. Design of Displacement: On one side Displacement and scarcity are fundamental products of capitalism, as amongst other thinkers Silvia Federicci expresses in multiphasetted expressions. On the other side the practice of design objectifies dispalcements and economic processes of scarcification. By objectifiying wealth and inconification of growth and material hendonism design is agent and perpetuating practice of an seemingly ever abstracifying perception of ecologies of objects and active agents. Following the idea of three ecologies initialy introduced by Gille Deleuze we aim at adressing the personal subjective ecology by shaping objectified narratives that claim to moderate unbecoming of current growth economies.
To unbecome delightfully: We introduce the carrier structure as a sepculative design model refelcting on notions of perceiving decay and errosion as productive and relevant parts of object cycles and logical parts of ecology of design and designs of ecology. The carrier claims to narrate and condensate ideas of concious reintegration of organic growth into urban and post-industrial environments. Sourcing from applicable biotechnologies and systematic application of spores, roots and natural errosion processes the carrier and the digester columns are mediums to see the growth in unbecoming and deliver a mission for humankind and more than human actors to find a meaningfull toolset in the current chemical and asphalt heavy environment plenty of exchanges are based in in current societies.
