Short papers / KŌDOS: multiple investigations through art, science, and technology

Authors: Claudio Filho; Fernanda Oliveira


This article proposes multiple investigations intended to make a poetic and speculative provocation of other operating systems that support society, ecosystems, and the Earth. By speculating the organizational arrangements of non-humans with technology, we can expand the possibilities of creating operational dynamics that help us to face the obstacles of the Anthropocene.


Theme: Art; Science; Technology; Nature; Anthropocene

Venue: CCCB

  • Abstract:The artistic poetics produced related to science and nature increased prominence as they incorporated political, technological, and social changes into their discourse aware of the environmental crises and their connection with the capitalist economic program. Hitherto, the union between artists and scientists has inspired works that, in general, incorporate new forms of organization between organic systems, technologies, and symbolic processes. Many contemporary artists conduct their projects through multispecies collaborations and work with a high potential for questioning and formulating non- hegemonic knowledges. This paper focuses on the recent KŌDOS experiments, a Brazilian art collective, which aims to investigate the visual poetics in relations with non-human organisms (living and non-living) and technologies to provide alternative and speculative models to inhabit the Earth. KŌDOS is composed by Claudio Filho and Fernanda Oliveira both members of ACTlab – laboratory for arts, science, and deviant technologies hosted at Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil
