 See Gregory Bateson’s “Steps To an Ecology of Mind.” (1972) “That is the sort of world we live in – a world of circuit structures – and love can survive only if wisdom (i.e. a sense or recognition of the fact of circuitry) has an effective voice.” (Bateson 56)
“The organism which destroys its environment destroys itself. The unit of survival is a flexible organism-in-its-environment.” (Bateson 458)

 See Félix Guattari’s “The Three Ecologies” (1989)
“It is up to the protagonists of social liberation to remodel the theoretical references so as to illuminate a possible escape route.” (Guattari 42)
“Working across disciplines, I take an open ended, meditative approach to art making, shifting between process-oriented solitary work and collaboration.”
