Dark Ecology: For A Logic of Future Coexistence by Timothy Morton [book, 2016]
Architecture without Nature by Timothy Norton [paper]
“A mirror’s a house for reflections…
A throat is a house for a hum…
A book is a house for a story.
A rose is a house for a smell.
My head is a house for a secret,
A secret I never will tell.
A flower’s at home in a garden.
A donkey’s at home in a stall.
Each creature that’s known has a house of its own
And the earth is a house for us all.
Again, that’s what the eco in ecology originally means:
oikos, home. The last two lines of A House is a House for Me
makes this very clear.”
(A poem from Timothy Morton’s paper, “Architecture without Nature”)
