Expressive Superorganisms

Annual Meeting Proceedings

Author(s): Marantha Dawkins

This paper outlines a symbiotic mode and model for design, drawn within discussions of expressivity, subjectivity, and multiscalarity. The figure of the superorganism represents an ecological being, open to fluid communication and unbound from normative frameworks intent upon systematizing technocratic exchanges of human concern. The superorganism extends and enriches notions of embodiment toward the communal coproduction of animate ecological territories.
