Abstract

Open Forest is an experimental research and practice-based inquiry into various forests and more-than-human
dataflows. The project explores how forests and forest data can be thought of and engaged with otherwise, in feral, co-creative ways that consider perspectives of diverse forest creatures and reach beyond technosolutionist, extractivist renderings of forests as resources. The creative work involves a series of experimental forest walks, interactive installations, sharing circles, and other situated encounters. Participants are invited to engage with various forest patches around the world and share their experiences in the form of forest stories. Through these co-creative engagements, the Collective aims to better understand how various stakeholders make sense of forests and forest data; to question what can constitute a forest dataset, how it can be produced, and by whom.
