Abstract [en]

In a study of 19th century Paris, Walter Benjamin offers a description of how it was fashionable, for a time, for the flaneurs of the Parisian arcades to walk with a turtle on a leash. This chapter presents designers a sequence of photos from the design research project Urban Animals & Us, accompanied by a reflection on the photo’s inherent relations between humans and animals by the writer Neil Bennun. Human—animal relationships, no matter how superior and in control the former, involve a degree of adaption to the ways and wants of the latter, be it beast, bird or reptile. Such slight relinquishing of control can be put to experimental aesthetic use. To challenge the monumental dualism, then, is to hybridise human and non-humans—or, more specifically, as is the case here humans and animals—in ways that blur clear-cut distinctions through experimental accounts of interconnected networks and worlds.
