Ecognosis (work in progress) | A stop-motion animation installation by BetweenTwoHands


Ecognosis, a riddle. Ecognosis is like knowing, but more like letting be known. It is something like coexisting. It is like becoming accustomed to something strange, yet it is also becoming accustomed to strangeness that doesn’t become less strange through acclimation. Ecognosis is like a knowing that knows itself.  Timothy Morton

The theatrical installation Ecognosis is inspired by Alan Weisman’s book The World Without Us. In this book, Weisman describes how nature takes over everything in different places in the world after the disappearance of human life. We depict this idea through the projection of stop-motion animations of microbes, insects and plants on the world as we know it.

ARCAM invited us to create a site-specific installation in the staircase and panic room. This is an installation of work in process that will be created and finalised between November 2020 and October 2021.
