Description of current research
One of my current research streams concerns the acrobatics and the limitations of environmental politics. I also research the materiality of the digital economy; the territories, resources and labour that it is anchored to. Those questions emerge in, an artwork and learning process where a garden slowly offsets the carbon emissions associated with a server.
