Documentation: Louisa Love

In libraries and classrooms, comfortably typing or drawing vectors, humans, through nonhuman ‘materials’, touch the atmosphere and the lithosphere. “Spooky action at a distance”? Myriads of invisibilised steps lie between a laptop and trees outside the window, passages running through ‘mutual cores’ of micro- and hyper-objects. Chains of causes upon causes stratify into agglomerations of effects. Or correlations, more or less probable, provable, pliable to graphic or algorithmic revelation. How can we ever know, who makes causes and effects in a networked planet?
