Exploring the idea of ecosystems and liminal spaces as metaphors for critical thought
STEAM2020's focus is on the idea of ecosystems and liminal spaces as a metaphor for critical thought. An ecology is most known as a method of describing natural or biological interdependencies and cooperations. In the greater sense, we can apply that notion as a systems mapping strategy to also describe the anthropological, the geopolitical, urban planning and countless others as organizational domains to evaluate and understand our relationship as a part of the ecosystem. In this way, we can apply the idea of an "ecosystem" as a concept for mapping the interdependencies and the co-mutualisms of an group of actors.
