Abstract/Summary

This project was made in relation to the exhibition Perfect Nature with Dutch hosts zone2source, who are based in Amstelpark, the location of our three-month “Test Site” residency. The research we undertook highlights art's role as an eco-social practice that requires forms which respect futures orientated toward cohabitation and coexistence with other species. In this brief text and visual essay, we explore light as pollution as we gradually shifted our gaze away from operational images of anthropogenic noise toward a propositional image both in situ at Amstelpark and further afield through symbiotic activism.
