Residency theme 

  • The more-than-human is the focus of the two Curious Encounters at Earthwise, because we think that more interdisciplinary work is needed in this fast-growing and important field. We believe that the climate emergency is caused by the industrialized societies having forgotten that Planet Earth is not just ‘resources’ for humans to utilize and grab, but a shared home, with no alternatives.Collaborations across science and art can propose new ways – or highlight the wisdom of old ways – to coexist with and understand other species / the more-than-human.Earthwise Residency focuses on practices and research, which heightens our sensitivity, knowledge, and methods for consciously reweaving our human lives with the myriad of relations and interdependencies we all rely on. We are interested in communication with the living world and the animal kingdom, and in developing creative work that situates and enhances curiosity and intimacy – encounters -with the more-than-human, while at the same time exploring corresponding academic research through artistic lenses.The two residencies Curious Encounters is one of our active contributions to the paradigm shifts happening these years. We believe that interdisciplinary meetings – the meeting and mixing of aesthetics, art expressions, humanities, and sciences – hold the possibility to foster new thoughts, rediscover ancient knowledge as well as new paths for action.
  • What we are looking for, or hope to experience
  • — Expanding / exploring the ways in which we in the arts communicate with other living entities as well as communicate about them; ie what does ‘understand’ and ‘relate’ mean, and how can ways of understanding and relating be shared? 
    — Expanding / exploring formats of conducting research in as well as disseminating work processes, findings and questions in the area of the more-than-human. 
    — Expanding / exploring formats of and ways to document work with and about the more-than-human 
    — Expanding / exploring ways to share work processes and methods in an ongoing dialogue, in-situ as well as online.

The residency provides working space, accommodation, a stipend of 4,700 EUR for each of the two persons, a small budget for materials, and part of the travel costs to encourage participants to travel by road, railway, or sea (the transport funding will be allocated based on transport type and distance).
