“Ignea: An Exchange about Nesting Technologies” Bibi Calderaro
Ignea: An Exchange About Nesting Technologies gathers audiences around a built fire to talk about possible ways to inhabit the planet, taking into account its scale, interdependencies, and temporalities. It proposes to rethink humanity’s relationship with fire, energy, and consumption.
Bibi Calderaro is an artist and educator who engages in transdisciplinary practice in order to expand her audience’s perceptual capacities to foster reciprocal, diverse, and ethical relationships among life forms. Her work aims at building ecological solidarity within and beyond humanity.
