In June, Connor Cook and I had the pleasure of speaking to Feifei Zhou, a Chinese artist/architect based between China and London. Feifei was a guest researcher at Aarhus University Research on the Anthropocene (AURA), working alongside Anna Tsing (author of The Mushroom at the End of the World). Her works explore spatial, cultural and ecological impact of the industrialized environment. Recently, she has finished co-editing the digital publication Feral Atlas: The More-than-Human Anthropocene together with Anna Tsing, Jennifer Deger and Alder Keleman Saxena, which was published in October 2020.
In this conversation, we discussed the process of developing Feral Atlas, the role of drawing as a means of representation, and what architects can learn by working in interdisciplinary teams.
