Media ecologie Paarikka
Post-media • ‘The emergence of these newpractices of subjectivation of a post-media era willbegreatlyfacilitatedby a concertedreappropriation of communicational and informationtechnology, assumingthattheyincreasinglyallowfor: 1) the formation of innovativeforms of dialogue and collectiveinteractivity and eventually, a reinvention of democracy; 2) Be means of the miniaturization and personalization of equipments, a resingularization of the machinicmediatizedmeans of expression; we canpresume, onthis subject, thatit is the connection, throughnetworking, of banks of data whichwill offer us the most surprising views; 3) The multiplication to infinity of ‘existential operators’, permitting acces to mutant creativeuniverses’ (G 300).
Post-media. ‘The coming post-mediaticrevolution must becalledon to take the relay (withincomparable efficiency) of minoritarygroupswhich are the onlyones, even today, that have becomeaware of the mortal risk, forhumanity, of problemssuch as: - the race to stockpilenuclearweapons, - worldhunger, - irreversibleecologicaldamage, - mass-mediaticpollution of collectivesubjectivity.’ (Guattari 300)

Ecologie. • ‘Now more than ever, nature cannot be separated from culture; in order to comprehend the interactions between ecosystems, the mechanosphere and the social and individual Universes of reference, we must learn to think ‘transversally’. (Guattari, in Paarika).
Ecologie – Media. • ‘The project(s) do not focus solely on the ecological crisis that has been a topic of media representations for years, but they seem to engage with a more immanent level of media ecology (…) Media is approached from the viewpoint of the anima and the perceptions, motilities and energies that escape the frameworks of human media (Paarika 35).
Ecologie – Media. • ‘Media are anaction of folding time, space, and agencies; media are not the substance, or the formthroughwhichmediatedactionstake place butan environment of relations in which time, space and agencyemerge’. (35) • ‘Media are contractions of forces and throughforcesbodies are born’. • ‘Potentiality, the realm of the virtual, is a futuritythat is envelopped in the present’ (36).
Praktijk. • ‘The Eco Media project is introduced as a certain system of potentialforces of nature. Itcanbeseen as a laboratoryforexperimentationbutonethat does notrelyoncreatingrestrictedspcesforanimalsornaturalprocesses, butinsteadtries to tap intotheirfunctioning in the wild’. • Communicationbetweenhuman and non-human media.
Praktijk. • ‘(eco-media project) reterritorialises the ecological processes as media technological’ (38). • What the project aimed to establish was the realisation of a whole new media sphere that ‘passes through’ humans without us consciously realising it’ (39) • ‘The cross talk mode of communication is in this sense communication as a topological weaving of various scales of perception, motility and sensation into a joint assemblage in which human media are able to touch animal and natural media’.
