Atmospheric Escape: Fabulating Care

Gaseous substances of the Earth escape into space and form extracorporeal bodies. These structures come into being as their molecular particles mutually support, align with and ripple against each other and the electromagnetic field. Johanna Bruckner calls this state polymorphous care or desire. How can these non-human bodies and their poetics of care be imagined? How can these crystallizations be aesthetically narrated, accessed and diffracted? How can they help us fabulate and perform possible future worlds, languages and practices of care beyond the tangible? The audio offers scores for the listener to approach these questions in aesthetic, sonic and collective ways.
