Figurations of a Shared Future: The exercise of creating collectively from images

Format: Papers, RSD12, RSD12 Papers Pre-release

Many indigenous communities in Latin America conceive weaving as a philosophical representation of the act of creation and the interconnectedness of our systemic reality. Weaving and embroiling is for them an act intrinsic to inhabiting a place and necessary to understand the world. This paper presents the experiences built with a community in the town of Chia, Colombia, where the act of weaving and embroiling over photographs of their environment is used to establish conversations regarding the specific needs and intentions of a community. Furthermore, the paper presents the preliminary results of a research-creation project in development, focused on the collective creation with a community of residents of Chía aimed to produce collective projections of possible futures. The project tries to overcome the urban visions of the future that has widely been established in our society, framed in certain common places, such as mobility problems, infrastructure or the loss of public space and present a wider view of the future based on situated deliberation.
