  • Lossy Ecology (artist book work)
    Lossy Ecology (artist book work)Buy Book: https://www.lossyecology.technology/ Lossy Ecology outlines the notion of an ‘ecosystem of realities’ in which bodies and experiences which resist static and dominant forms of representation, evolve their own means of self-definition. The term Lossy Ecology refers to the notion of a symbiotic permaculture of realities (compressions/filtered viewpoints) which can account for the multitude of embodied realities across humans, and beyond. Lossy Ecology seeks to build upon the framework

Email: hello@solasystems.xyz or book a free 1 hour consult here: https://calendly.com/sola_sessions/initial-consultation-1-hour __ MISSION To serve creative, late identified, autistic+ adults with visionary digital tools and services for self-recognition, self-development and self-actualisation towards cultural leadership. To earth a radical, intersectional, anti-racist, anti-eugenicist, ecologically aligned perspective on autistic disability that is focused on tools, solutions, interdependency and community. One that is defined within the individual and their own body as the basis for knowledge about their body, and through acknowledgement and critique of the political context. To elevate autistic labelled experience beyond the rhetoric of pathology and into a culturally defined, valued and protected status. Uplifting and engaging multiply marginalised voices and intersectional experiences is integral to this mission.
