In this presentation, I document four different environmental projects that I am working on across four different timescales. The point of presenting them all collectively is to note the interdependence of shortterm stopgap interventions and long-term utopic projects for detoxifying the atmosphere. Each of the interventions I present has a self-edifying temporality and logic for calculating and minimizing violence. Juxtaposing them illustrates their individual insufficiency and the need for syncretic methods rife with productive frictions that make strides towards a less toxic world through coordinating across multiple self-enclosing timescales and logics.
