We live in uncertain times, times so uncertain we don’t know what to call them: the Holocence, the Anthropocene, Capitalocene, or the Chthulucene? The conversation around the current epoch from a quasi-scientific perspective can assist humans in the critically needed repositioning of ourselves as only one of many animaliaon the planet. In order to rethink our selvesin relation to the land and its discontents, I propose listening for relationshipswhile conceiving alternative futures and presents. // Johanna Householder works in video, performance art, and audio. Her interest in how ideas move through bodies and shape our perception of bodies, both human and animal, leads her often collaborative practice.
