Donna J. Haraway, Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene

It matters what matters we use to think other matters with; it matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what knots knot knots, what thoughts think thoughts, what descriptions describe descriptions, what ties tie ties. It matters what stories make worlds, what worlds make stories.

It matters what stories make worlds, what worlds make stories.

Heather Griffin (she/her) operates at the intersection of art, design and futures to bring communities together and create new narratives for our transitional times. Within this space she presents alternative visions of the world through speculation, world building, play, and experiential learning. A practice grounded in analysing and utilising mythologies, social phenomena, and the rhythms of everyday life, thereby critiquing the contradictions of our contemporary capitalist realities. She takes a pluralistic, iterative approach and favours interdisciplinary collaborations to engage communities, conduct deep research and embrace complex systems. Her work consists of multimedia outputs that provoke debate with an aim to collectively imagine alternative futures, connected to long horizons of time, that will help shape more equitable and sustainable worlds. With an educational background in design and research she has a BA in Visual Communication from TU Dublin and an MA in Design of Experiences from the Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam.
