media ecologies

in Guattari’s Chaosmosis, media ecologies do not act with the goal of preserving the species that inhabit them, but function by encouraging the

creation and development of unprecedented formations of subjectivity that have never been seen (Guattari, 1995, p.91).

His notion of ecology is not incompatible to the one proposed by Stengers. However,  Guattari’s vision appears to suggest a dynamism that aspires at transcending, more than just constructing a variety of practices through what Stengers had defined a “reciprocal capture.” In other words, Guattari seems to suggest that media ecologies are not just facilitating and enabling symbiotic and parasitic (thus necessarily interconnected) relations but radical transformations and unexpected formations.
