Voicing Absences/Presences in a Damaged World


The Remutaka (Rimutaka) Range, bordering Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand.
Successive waves of human settlements burnt or felled the immense forest that once covered the country. In 1915-1918, infantry soldiers took the Remutaka Hill Road, visible on the left, as part of an ultimate three-day march and 555-metre climb before embarking for the European front at Wellington's harbour.

“How shall we shelter the remains of Holocene ecologies, that is, multispecies ecologies in the midst of human settlement and cultivation? We can’t shelter anything we don’t notice.”

“Staying with the trouble requires making oddkin; that is, we require each other in unexpected collaborations and combinations, in hot compost piles. We become-with each other or not at all.”
