When we started to imagine ‘How we want to build islands?’ Marker Wadden inspired us to engage with the point of view of nonhuman subjects as co-designers. Recognising that the state of our world today is based on human action, we are seeking for different tools, behaviours and other approaches that space making requires.
While living through what is perceived to be one of nature’s most intense crises in generations, we should rethink and reinvent our actions and enable more than human dialogues within space. Being on the Marker Wadden islands – currently under construction and full of life – gave us an insight of what is possible to imagine and what impacts the mere act of heaping up silt can have.
