PRACTICES/SERVICES

Using the unique method of our three core practices – we create, collaborate and engage
EARTH CoLab applies the Gaian philosophy to the 3 practices outlined below.

WORLD AS A CLASSROOM

– Transformative learning methods –

‘Place’ and ‘Interconnectivity’ are at the center of our pedagogy. Employing exploratory techniques to discover a ‘place’, this approach is designed to highlight nodes at which disciplines intersect. At its core , this is an effort to depart from the fragmented processes of learning, thus creating an interconnected view of any system. This form of learning vacates preconceived roles of ‘educator’ and ‘learner’ in favour of investigating what it means to collectively build knowledge and make meaning of every experience.

INFECTIOUS KNOWLEDGE

– Creative Science Communication –

We aim to taking ‘science’ beyond academics and media, we employ appropriate formats suited to the message and the target audience for effective communication. This enables wider access to information, by taking ‘science’ beyond academics and media. We document and translate information using a variety of creative methods that are tuned to the range of interest groups in society.
We view ‘Information and Knowledge’, this generation’s most powerful assets, differently. No longer will the custodians of this asset be the most powerful, but it is those who have the ability to creatively and effectively share, collaborate and utilize this information and knowledge.

PRACTICE OF PERSPECTIVE

– Mobile Residencies –

An exercise to aggregate diverse ways of viewing a space. In facilitating the collision of perspectives, one enhances the techniques of art production and academic inquiry in the natural environment. The ‘Practice of Perspective’ is pivoted on the relationship between the viewer and the subject – where the appearance of viewed subjects depends on the relative position and distance from the viewer. Here ‘position’ refers to a point of view, and ‘distance’ refers to one’s reason for viewing. The residencies we curate adopt this approach, providing artists and scientists a variety of locations, interactions and views, based on their area of study.
