Image Statement: “I propose a name for an elsewhere and elsewhen that was, still is, and might yet be: the Chthulucene. The word tentacle comes from the Latin tentaculum, meaning “feeler,” and tentare, meaning “to feel” and “to try”; ... Myriad tentacles will be needed to tell the story of the Chthulucene.” Donna J. Haraway, Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene The FEELER series is a statement towards radical tentacular thinking as an intimate embrace of a new materiality, where tissue, textile and fabric serve as excellent models of knowledge. The undeniable holonic interconnectedness of contemporaneity becomes tangible via manifestations of webs and threads, unfurling globally to connect the far reaches of our world, from internet hypercommunication, to vital fungal mycelium networks, to the invisible culture and data structures which we inhabit. Nothing makes itself. We exist and thrive in sympoisesis.
