From December 2022 to February 2023, Adaptive Radiations Working Group resided in a small riverside town in San Felipe, Zambales to investigate the lingering effects of the 1991 Mount Pinatubo eruption on the people, landscape and ecosystems on the west coast of Luzon, Philippines.
With the support of Akademie Schloss Solitude and SAVVY Contemporary Berlin through Web Residencies No.18: Magical Hackerism or The Elasticity of Resilience, Mica Cabildo and JM Quiblat collected stories, field recordings and visual documentation as raw material for a science fiction audio production.
"Cloudrunner: The Pinatubo Field Guide to Solar Geoengineering" is a speculative field guide for approaching climate geoengineering from diverse perspectives and integrating overlooked knowledge from those on the ground.
In “Decoy Pigeon”, ARWG collected, shared and exchanged objects, stories and experiences on the road, and examined varied forms of exchange recounted by collectors, curators and mediators during their interactions.
