Organizational resilience is a topic of great interest to those involved in managing risk, crises, and emergencies. Current understandings of organizational resilience is shaped by scientific analysis and methods. In this paper we explore the role of art and aesthetics in understanding resilience.

A topological approach (as opposed to algebraic) accentuates the aesthetic understanding of risks. Aesthetics offers a different awareness of risks and emotional capacities to recover from crises.
