Sensing a constellation
Sensing a constellation aims to create a sensitive interface, to navigate a database of feminist healing decolonial hacking practices and to document their traces.
This explorations involves meeting, reading, hearing, connecting dots and playing with forms of displaying this constellation.
To constellate is a practice that allows us to make sense, to align ourselves (Estela López Solís) and eventually to add stars in a sky already deprived of light (Adrienne Maree Brown, citing Martin Luther King). A constellation is an ensemble of stars. From a situated knowledge position, the stars appear visibly close for civilizations to draw links between them by creating meaningful shapes. We ask: how can contemporary technofeminism generate a constellation of hopes, solidarities, and intersectional practices in order to dance forward a desirable future?
