Desire Lines 1, Digital Illustration, Luca Lana

Queer theory’s ecological extension queer ecology demanded from me new relational thinking. Through my site-specific research, I became more and more attuned to a connectedness of the body and context in which these spaces existed; the body (or bodies), material and context all became important. The social, legislative and spatial conditions that give rise to queer spaces are, of course, preceded by ecological and geological conditions of vastly differing time scales and enormous volumes and weights of material and matter.  Geological formations formed over millennia, glacial melting, the dynamic fluidity of the earth and even seasonal flooding became as important actors as the queer humans in creating queer spaces.
