Charting the alive

Charting the alive
Greening is the leitmotiv flooding discourses, washing over politics, sparkling as the cure-all. 
Greening bathes design as well. To this chromatic reductionism we entrust the whole of the living. But to represent life, associate it with a color is the simplest and most effective of prisons, i.e. a flat reference to a vague idea of some nature somewhere.
Three living, human collectives—Anuradha Mathur and Dilip Da Cunha, based in Philadelphia and Spring 2021 Mercedes T. Bass Landscape Architects in Residence at the American Academy in Rome, Chair of Being Alive based in Zurich, and Marco Ferrari and Elisa Pasqual, founders of Studio Folder, based in Milan—accepted to share their practice of charting the alive and their ongoing con-versation with the intelligence and the arbitrariness of both the human and non-human. At times, this involves handcrafting the tools and the board on which the other, alive, is noted. At times, this means reviewing the rewriting techniques, because the other demands learning its own language of life.
Their mapping returns a motion that gives our eyes a jolt reverberating in our minds, leading us to recall the experience, taking us back through something that happened and is still alive. Anything but a prison.
