“A World is an artificial living thing,
but a living thing nonetheless.” — Ian Cheng
There are different ideas of what the activity of worlding pertains to. It ranges from the imagination and fostering of fantastical cosmologies, utopias, or futures you can believe in, to the construction of new reality systems or the active forging of functional systemic alternatives. To revise a world means to look at it repeatedly in a new light. Worlding is also the unmaking of the world: it requires us to rethink our relation to the environment and our own role within it.
“The discrepancy between globalized modes of inhabitation and a (theoretical) planetary condition can be captured in the following distinction: the difference between the making of a common world vs. the making of worlds in common.” — Patricia Reed
