Regeneration, Decolonisation and Everything in Between

Geo-political history permeates epistemologies and ontologies and manifests through creative practices such as design.

 

Exploring the intersection of fashion and colonialism asks social questions about creativity, humankind, and more than humankind. A 'between' positionality can expand our understanding of ethical and artistic dimensions of social change through mobility and possibility.

Sustainable futures can emerge through these global conversations, living stories, ecologies, and genealogies.

Nomadic [inter]subjectivity within my research extends Rosi Braidotti's [1994] nomadic theory by understanding knowledge ecologies through a generative lens; both the circulation of knowledge and an ecological perspective negotiated alongside others. It is a critical metaphor for design that can embed new patterns of interculturality into design philosophy and practice.

 

Some of the key ideas from Many Worlds Meeting [seen in the diagram to the right] It is an epistemological and political option for designers to ensure inclusion and optimise the opportunity to materialise decoloniality.

 

Some examples in the diagram above such as a designer who keeps bees, fermenters, plastic eradicators, indigo growers, designers of waste management, beach cleaners, clay players, body mappers, game makers, anti-trend writers, and heritage preservers
