A series of four salons that are curated by the techno-feminist publication series href zine. On the occasion of the second issue of href zine being released on landscapes, technoid natures, and symbioses:
The second issue of the href zine discovers and appreciates the other-than-human and the human to be embedded in the very same more-than-human spaces and landscapes. At the same time this issue assembles designed, written, emerged, read and printed landscapes, that derive their form from participation and contributions. Based on this initial situation our agenda to destabilize human exceptionalism and re-distribute agency, will firstly de-territorialize human technologies as indicators of superiority, and secondly to revise and rethink our human technologies as tools of re-connecting with the world. This issue of the href zine dreams of technoid natures, that are shared and inhabited by other-than-humans and humans, everything born, grown and made, mediated via technologies and practices.

Entangled Others StudioSofia Crespo & Feileacan McCormick:
Entanglement is a complex state one where no single entity can be said to be separate, or somehow unaffected, by any other present entangled, we cannot consider ourselves without others, act without interacting, speak without being heard.
It is a multitude of you, and others, equally present and alive, together.
The rich substrate of the uncanny, eerie spaces between us and the non-human world cannot remain as an aesthetic space, our world cannot bear this self-imposed distance and denial of our inter-twined state of us and others.
Becoming entangled others studio is about moving further into an entanglement with the more-than-human world of us & others. A world where diversity and inter-connectedness are nurtured and engaged.
