"In this talk I attempt to track the simultaneous composition and decomposition of life through industrial chemistry and late industrial capitalism with a particular focus on how our chemical ecologies, infrastructures, atmospheres, and techniques of capital accumulation shift over time: a bundle of linked processes and materials I am tenuously calling “chemo-capital succession.” Stemming from ethnographic work on formaldehyde and its precursor, methane (a potent green house gas), I will query the political implications of remediation, speculative finance as environmental regulator, civic technosciene/consumerist irony, and artist led-‘alter-engineering’ projects."
