This eleven-day camp at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop was for challenging our industrialised sense of self and relation to the ecosystems we inhabit and rely on. It is for researching, debating, and practicing post-oil aesthetics and culture. It is for asking and acting on important questions about climate breakdown and survival. It is for entering a larger shared effort that goes forward and amplifies itself in the places, cities, landscapes, narratives, and congregations we carry it to.
I contributed to the camp with Beat to the Balance and Clydesdale Oracle sessions.
