abstract

Uncanny Ecology denies the artificial divide between humanity and nature, and acknowledges the agency of non-human things in the design process. By scrutinizing aesthetic and philosophical precedents, the created object exists in a way that challenges anthropocentric hierarchies that privilege humans and the human made world above all other things. The resulting project can be understood as an ontological network of objects in which architecture is reinserted into an ecology that includes both the "human" and the "natural" world.
