Becoming with Others through Creative Making:
Imagination, Representation and Direct Experience

As technology and mass production seems to ease life, there are tendencies for us to presuppose, to take things for granted. Is it possible to defy this inertia? Should we aim to achieve consensus or dissensus? What could be the roles of creative interventions?

Taking daily encounters as starting points, Sheng-Wen Lo will trace the relationships between non-humans and contemporary societies through his position, experiences and strategies as a visual maker.
