Symbiocene is a nomadic platform, set up to question our design abilities and sensibilities, to experiment and produce work that works outside and beyond the anthropocentric and capitalist production of our everyday realities. Continuously evolving, it aims to explore the potentials of interspecies collaboration and look for ways to encourage symbiotic relationships within the contexts in which it operates.
The platform was set up by design duo Gaja Mežnarić Osole and Andrej Koruza who work within the Trajna collective. Trajna is a non-governmental organisation which works towards supporting solidarity and cross-species co-sustainment by initiating commprojecty economies, creative research, organising workshops and designing eco-infrastructure. At the moment Trajna is focusing on developing creative and sustainable solutions for invasive species management.
