In “The Three Ecologies,” Félix Guattari proposes strategies for an eco-logic and ethico-aesthetic. In grammar, ‘correlative’ implies a (non-adjacent) reciprocal or complimentary relationship. Affixing the two, Ecologías Correlativas presents projects and research from a trans-disciplinary group of artists, architects and scientists navigating interrelated environmental/socio-political ecologies. Many of the participants privilege an open source ethos and think tank mentality, effectively democratizing prototypes and distribution models. From harvesting energy to mobilizing individuals, the works on display ask us to reconsider the roles of technology and subjectivity in what is broadly referred to as ‘ecological’.
