RESEARCH /terra-collar work,

with Juaniko Moreno, 2021-2023

terra-collar work is a multidisciplinary endeavor that shifts the climate change discussion to work. It analyses the role that the infrastructure of work—its places, actors, and technologies—has played in the drastic transformations of ecosystems and pictures a transition to the future of work which responds to mitigation and adaptation goals. Drawing from various projects and initiatives, including state-run policy proposals and grassroots community activities, the proposal presents scenarios for transitioning, emphasizing the need to redesign work to ensure Earth remains habitable for people.


terra-collar work argues that this transition requires more work effort, not less. Thus, it interrogates the future of work concepts that advocate for global workload reductions, nonwork time increase and access to granted basic income, such as healthcare. It also critically engages with IPCC reports, Shared Socioeconomic Pathways, and other climate change assessments, focusing on their analytical tools. It operates at the intersection of economics, design, environmentalism, and infrastructure studies and proposes six operative parameters—scale, distribution, repurposment, training, sensing, and assurance—to illustrate how the transition to a rescaled, situated, and authenticated work infrastructure can be enacted.


Residing in a digital platform, video essay, and series of public events, the project articulates across different mediums to instigate actions with available tools.
