Vibrant Ecologies of Research
Aaron D. Knochel
Articles and Commentaries
There is a need to bridge the arts with the sciences to fully address the social and environmental crises facing the planet. Transdisciplinarity can meet this need if certain barriers are overcome: namely, delimited thinking and dysfunctional institutional structures.
By remaking the creative design cycle through an accessibility and disability justice lens, Leonardo CripTech Incubator scaffolds new forms of artistic access. Bringing a disability justice lens to art-and-technology research practice and to this incubator’s design, we position ourselves as facilitators in this vibrant ecology, calling up other critical voices in this process.
Invited commentary on Vibrant Ecologies of Research
This dialogue developed over several months between guest editor Aaron Knochel and Leonardo Executive Editor Roger Malina regarding the special collection Vibrant Ecologies of Research. Key publications and projects are jumping-off points for this wide-ranging discussion.
Notes on the Collection
A profusion of hyperlinks within the Vibrant Ecologies projects and commentaries speak to the interconnectedness of this type of research. However, a2ru Ground Works is not responsible for the integrity of those links over time.
