“GEO-SYNCHRONICITY”

Our interaction with our host environment is continuous and pervasive; the balances that determine the ecosystem to which we belong are constantly subject to stresses of various kinds, which also change in relation to the various historical periods of reference.

The impact of the activities of Homo Sapiens on the practices of self-regulation of the natural systems of our planet – also defined by using the term that designates the present geological era as that of the Anthropocene – has led to a series of consequences. Among them, we can glimpse the diminishing of the direct relation of influence between the times dictated by the natural cosmos – the pace of the seasons, the rhythm of terrestrial cycles – and those that mark the existence of individuals.

The sensation of an increasingly pronounced gap between geo-referential rhythms and those of contemporary living becomes more and more vivid, giving rise to the idea that their disconnection – or uncoupling – is undergoing a progressive acceleration.

Can the attempt to put these two distinct “types of time” back in tune with each other be pursued through design praxis? By means of what devices or artifacts can we imagine proposing a meaningful, new synchrony between man, the environment and its cycles?
