    An Emerging Posthumanist Design Landscape2022In: Palgrave Handbook of Critical Posthumanism / [ed] Stefan Herbrechter, Ivan Callus, Manuela Rossini, Marija Grech, Megen de Bruin-Molé, Christopher John Müller, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2022Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A designer is somebody who points, who designates, and gives directions. Design thereby has a direction into the future. What directions are designers pointing out if design is coupled with posthumanism? Posthumanism has come into being in a landscape of both ideas and design. That which has previously been designed and produced is coming back and it can help us point out harmful inequalities if we sharpen our observational tools and concepts.

    “An Emerging Posthumanist Design Landscape” is an overflowing designated area for examples and thinking on compositions of design and critical posthumanism. It is a landscape in the making, yet scarred by previous design cultures and histories. As design researchers operating out of Scandinavian academia, we invite readers/travelers to meander through an emerging hybrid landscape and to make a few selected stops at the sites of our own recent design interventions. We articulate concepts, frictions, and opportunities sprouted in a sprawling and increasingly populated landscape of design and posthumanism. Posthumanist thinking questions and recharges fundamental design concepts and methods/approaches, e.g.: Who are the actors of posthumanist design? Where does it take place? What do we design? What materials do we use? How do we work? When does design take place? Why are compositions of design and critical posthumanism important undertakings? The responses to these questions sketch trajectories for further travels and the co-creation of an emerging posthumanist design landscape.

    Attentive walking: Encountering mineralness2022Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This presentation shares my insights gathered from a series of curated mineral walks in a disused limestone quarry in Limhamn, Malmö, near the coast of the southwestern edge of Sweden. As a trained industrial designer and PhD candidate within design, my entry point is to explore human-mineral relations from designerly and curatorial approaches. In my work I am drawing from a theoretical framework of feminism new materialism and critical posthumanism, in order to critically and creatively examine the role of the designer and the connections between design and global extractivism. In the disused limestone quarry, walking has become a method for situated knowledge production emerging from the mineral encounters in this transformational site itself, like the sediment layered walls which expose not only the boundary between geological periods but also evokes philosophical conversations about the boundaries between life and non-life. Contrary to the regular guided tours at this site (from the perspectives of geology, biology and industrial history), the mineral walk starts from the hypothesis that minerals are not lifeless. My insights suggest that, when not merely considered as ‘resources’ or ‘threats’, to humans, then walking and thinking with rocks, stones and minerals as vital (Bennett 2010), has a potential to extend our ethical and political response (Springgay et. al., 2017). Walking as a method puts focus on human-nature entanglements, with the aim to establish that nature is not a mere background as ecofeminist Val Plumwood put it (1993) or located somewhere out there, but always the very substance of ourselves, what Stacy Alaimo calls the transcorporeal (2010). The walk and this presentation, explores this common ground, “the petric in the human and the anthropomorphic in the stone” (Cohen, 2015), because as Fausto- Sterling puts it, “culture can shape bones” and “bone-structure can shape cultures” (Åsberg et. al., 2011).

    Cultivating caring coexistence: Designing post-anthropocentric futures2019In: Konstfack Research Week: 28 Jan. - 1 Feb. 2019, Stockholm: Konstfack , 2019, p. 8-8Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This research project explores the connections and controversies between human-centeredness in design and ultimately human survival on Earth. Drawing from posthuman theory in combination with metadesign and speculative design tools, Petra Lilja will ideate ways that the designer can engage with and acknowledge other-than-human actors to equalize current hierarchies and promote more caring coexistence.

    The paradigm of human exceptionality has set in motion a machinery of global effects of which design, by adding to mass-production and consumption, can be argued to be a principal cog. As one response to environmental decay and increasing material scarcity on Earth, scientists and the space industry are investing in the potential of asteroid mining, planetary engineering and in-space manufacturing to meet the demands of our growing population. Designers are now challenged by these entangled environmental and technological changes to focus on complex socio-technical systems, not only on global but at multiplanetary scale.

    By juxtaposing the need to acknowledge mankind’s dependency on other species with the extreme conditions for humans on Mars, this project initially seeks to critically explore what a speculative Martian future can teach us regarding how to cultivate caring coexistence between species. What stories of circularity can humans as “consumers” learn from “producing” organisms in order to add to instead of just take from the ecological system? This research project will explore multispecies-inclusive narratives with the aim to find designerly strategies and processes for engaging and empowering scales of actors and knowledges otherwise unaddressed.

    Design for the Age of Species: Exploring ways for designers to care for multispecies coexistence2019In: Proceedings of the 8th Bi-Annual Nordic Design Research Society Conference - Who Cares?, Nordes – Nordic Design Research , 2019, Vol. 8Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the project The Age of Species (TAS) and the ‘multispecies approach’ addressing the who in care with the aim to disrupt human-centeredness and open up for reconfigurations of design practices to better engage with troubled presents where a myriad of other species is overlooked and becoming extinct. TAS invites designers and scientists to speculate of and design for anthropo-de-centric futures by thinking through care and coexistence. By describing and reflecting on the experiences of an initial workshop and its outcomes as well as anchoring it with theories within feminist posthumanism, the aim is to explore and define the notion of a multispecies approach. The purpose is to raise questions to be developed in the continuation of the project TAS and share insights that may contribute to a wider discourse of human de-centering design.

    Tracing matters of scale by walking with minerals2021In: Nordes 2021: Matters of Scale, Kolding, 2021, Vol. 9, p. 390-400Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    All practices of design are dependent on materials and an anthropocentric way of thinking matter as mere resource, dominates. This paper attempts to counteract that mode of thinking about matter, by walking and thinking with stones, minerals and fossils, rendering matter as vibrant, arguing that a multi-scalar type of thinking is required to understand the complex issues and effects of the so-called Anthropocene. The Mineral Walk is presented as a cartographic mapping of encounters and spatio-temporal scales of a disused limestone quarry. Its sedimented walls serve as an explanatory tool that challenges linear, humancentric timescales and boundaries between human/nature, mind/ body, life/ death, past/ future; dualisms that permeates academic disciplines as well as design practices. Through the concepts introduced, this paper contributes to a formulation of a practical and theoretical framework for thinking matter otherwise. It opens up for a more entangled understanding of, and care for, human-matter relations.

    Walking with minerals2021In: STREAMS - Transformative Environmental Humanities, 2021Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Through moving images and an audible collage of texts, this presentation will unearth learnings from a disused limestone quarry in the south of Sweden. The mineral walks undertaken here, curated and guided by two designers and researchers, are situated and materially immersed explorations of our relations to more-than-human entities like rocks, stones and minerals, asking: How do the ways in which we think matter, material and time, predetermine, limit, or enable the way we then construct our relations to place, to objects as well as communities of human and nonhuman earth others? Without the driving beat of progression in this post-industrial site, we reorienting our attention to more-than-human world-makings, through walking in silence, noticing the fossilized strata as transformations from living organisms to geological sedimented rock over deep timescales, trying to grasp the vibrancy inherent in the mineral.

    sensing interdependency, experiencing embeddedness, extending the frame while zooming in2021In: Proceedings of Politics of the Machines - Rogue Research 2021 (POM 2021) / [ed] Michelle Christensen, Florian Conradi, Morten Søndergaard, Laura Beloff, Hassan Choubassi, Swindon, UK: ScienceOpen, Inc. , 2021, p. 77-83Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This text is a dialogic conjunction of working practices developed in and around specific quarries, with Karin Reisinger tracing the material and life-worlds of iron ore in Malmberget and Petra Lilja the limestone in Limhamn, both in Sweden. We walk and think with humans and non-humans such as rocks, stones and minerals through our respective practices and pedagogies of design and architecture. Our practices take place in and around quarries, extractive sites of mining. We come in after the machines, when it is time to think about how to move forwards, to deal with the losses, to repair and care and to find strategies of surviving and coming together in educational situations. Dealing with the large-scale spatial changes, we are deeply aware that we are participating in massive earthly and material movements. With this paper we also share connections between theory and practice, based on a feminist–materialist framework. These connections lead us to the various applied practices of sensing interdependency, experiencing embeddedness and extending the frame while zooming in and to its epistemological reverberations.
