Human advancements and ecology are not sharing the same nature. The planet
did not evolve all those Eras influenced only by our conceptions, and will
not do that as well when the truly post-human will follow the
post-dinosaurs. But today, the human factor is introduced in the ecological
continuum through conditions exploiting resources dictated by
geo-economical and geo-political dynamics: not privileging us above the way
we think about life, rather happening on its own way.

Dark Ecology states exactly this: the inner mechanisms of ecology are not
intimately depending by our cultural mystifications and they are based on
dimensions behind our human values, ethics, visions and so on; lying in an
ontological sphere with its own rules in which humans are not the only
relevant aspect even in a moment when their catastrophic interventions risk
the planetary collapse. In this dark perspective, our culture about
living-systems becomes one key-role which must be discussed in order to
better understand this alien conditions of ecology. Artists share the
responsibility to look into this and tune their work on what can be
defined: non-human agencies.

Human habitat, on the other hand, is the synthesis between ecology and
culture which can help us to understand how we perceive and shape the
world. In it, we participate by voicing infinite qualities of beauty and
pre-announce future directions of staying together in our even possible
environment. The exploitations of resources are followed by those in
technology and science. Artists, in this new phase of absolute imperative
of innovation for a dramatic change, find ways to envision their experience
using knowledge and processes borrowed from research in laboratories of
biology, design, cultivation, food, health, landscape, nomadism and

The exhibition Dark Habitats Dark Ecology challenges artists and audience
to reflect on alternative ways to look into the state of
home-sustainability and shows examples in which technology and science can
reveal our human, specific way to impress upon the idea of nature an always
beautiful but ecologically problematic sense of living.
