The first volume grapples with the reflexive relationships of extraction, ruination and reverberation, working towards solidarity across places and perspectives. Together, the essays, conversations and artworks included here map new landscapes, producing images of liminal times and spaces that provide a critical opportunity to reassess diverse relationships to the world. Queer and decolonial methods are approached as explicit tools of disorientation, questioning the clarity of time and space that arises from a Western cis-heteronormative and imperial context. Rather than a field guide, this book proposes a constellation of material – a horizontal network made of various perspectives which together may point in new directions.

Artists, writers and architects converse across the borders that divide places and disciplines, enacting the tangling that already exists in our plural ecosystems.
