In response to increasing levels of pollution, waste, injustice, and environmental degradation, Ecologies of Inception: Design Potentials on a Warming Planet (Routledge 2022) develops a philosophy of design and value that, refusing to consign powers to the extraction or availability of raw materialsor to consider materials as separable from the landscapes, knowledges and practices from which they emergepromotes reuse, repurposing, and radical forms of co-authorship and care as design paradigms for the 21st century.
