Abstract

Staying Alive!
The second iteration of Intersections takes as its thematic focus the very idea of continuing, through an examination of sustainability. More than ever, we are particularly aware of that which is finite and that which is infinite. But equally, everything is part of a plenum; the relentless tumble and fold of objects, structures, histories, materials and ideologies of every scale does and will continue apace. What do we take forward, and how? How can - or should - we transform or reform in the future using the experience that we have? In accepting the momentum of transformation and destruction, humanity rationalises the guises for harm and hope in the best ways we know. Whatever your vantage point, you may not look the other way.

We could not have known, when we selected this theme, the many global crises that would play out during this issue’s development. Rather than change our exclamatory title, the context for the many ways in which persevering - through locking down and masking up; protesting against racial injustices; recognising the erosion of boundaries between natural and manmade habitats; articulating our unrecognised labour and more - it is now a battle cry to make the change we want to see in the world. With the inquisitive impulses that drive our research adding to an attentive and steady chipping away, in the endeavour to create something new from the old. Recognising and acknowledging each other’s efforts when we meet at the intersections.
