Strata Manifesto
“He traveled over hill and dale.”

Geological thinking; stretches time beyond the human history with ‘deep time’; speed, from daily flux, to tectonic plates’ movements; and scale, from human to the planetary. The human-centric perception of a conquerable static world should evolve into a planet-centric perception of a responsive, dynamic world. In Anthropocene ‘strata’ should be re-defined as sections of a network formed by dynamic mineral-organic-cultural components. Design theory and practices should be approached as a re-configuration of intensities of any strata in subject.
