Timothy Morton’s Symbiotic Solidarity

“Dark ecology starts off dark as in depressing. Then it becomes dark as in mysterious. Then it ends dark as in sweet dark chocolate. In this lecture I’m going to provide an experiential map of dark ecology – a phenomenology of dark ecology, to be more precise. What are the chemicals that make up ecological awareness? I’m going to argue that they form a very distinctive pattern and that we are traversing through this pattern right now, as if we were eating into a chocolate. But we are only on our first or second bite. There are two more big bites to go. Once we have a feel for the phenomenology, we can figure out what kinds of art process and practice we want to involve ourselves in with a much greater sense of power and accuracy.”
