Laurie Charles makes videos in which she invites her friends to play: there she mixes folklores, humanities and histories (and narratives of history); Also she writes and paints – fictions and on canvases – speculative narratives.
At 1646, she will be making science fiction by re-writing and re-enacting the history of certain communitarian experiences: North-American utopias, Deep Ecology, ecofeminism and the marginal worldwide movement. The narration will not be anthropocentric and will grant a leading role to bacteria and plants – which are great actors! It will think post-natural: commenting on and opposing to the dichotomy of the natural against the non-natural.
