Abstract [en]

This chapter introduces Bully as a useful figure for thinking and doing less anthropocentric design. Bully takes shape through the author’s reflections on three design acts that attempt to retune relations between human and nonhuman lives. Bully appears in three different sites of human-nonhuman relating: meat-eating, recreational fishing, and genetic manipulation. The first project, Eating E. T., centres around a full-scale gluten replica of the alien from the 1982 film, roasted whole on a spit and eaten at a public barbecue. Fish Watching is a reconfigured fishing practice where the fish is captured on camera, not penetrated by a hook. E.Coli Disco speculates on biotechnological intervention based on bacterial social interference. The chapter affirms the darker timbres of multispecies cohabitation: domination, sacrifice, manipulation. Bully finds pleasure in kicking downwards yet refuses to kill. Bully is fleshed out as a problematic-yet-hopeful character in a messy spectrum between the poles of angelic abolitionism and business-as-usual human supremacism. In the necessary transition from ego to eco, from independence to interdependence, it is suggested that Bully may have a role to play.
