The research aims at analyzing the theme of human-nature interactions mediated by technologies from different perspectives and applying three lenses: the first one is more pragmatic and oriented by technological applications, and, thus, with relapses on design practices, while the other two are theoretical – decolonization and post-human feminism – and they provide a critical vision of the topics of interest from an ontological and epistemological point of view, with relapses on design theories. Therefore, the goal of the research is to provide a first draft of a framework, designed through a process of literature review and case studies analysis, that can stimulate more-than-human connections as collaborative and symbiotic processes between human and non-human agents, oriented by new perspectives upon technology.

Abstract

The research aims at analyzing the theme of human-nature interactions mediated by technologies from different perspectives and applying three lenses: the first one is more pragmatic and oriented by technological applications, and, thus, with relapses on design practices, while the other two are theoretical – decolonization and post-human feminism – and they provide a critical vision of the topics of interest from an ontological and epistemological point of view, with relapses on design theories. Therefore, the goal of the research is to provide a first draft of a framework, designed through a process of literature review and case studies analysis, that can stimulate more-than-human connections as collaborative and symbiotic processes between human and non-human agents, oriented by new perspectives upon technology.
