With each of these three case studies, I arrive at a unique understanding of ecosexuality. The Love Art Laboratory presents ecosexuality as a matter of orientation, in which that toward which we become oriented is not an object from which we are separate but a relation of which we are a part: our intra-active material entanglement within the nonhuman world. Dangerous Curves envisions bodies as promiscuous assemblages of discontinuous parts depicted at multiple scales, in which parts do not add up to bodies organ-ized into one of two sexes and do not stay discretely bound within categories such as "human" and "nonhuman," for which sexualities proliferate at any number of connections. In Rite of Spring, both dancing bodies and dirt fluctuate between animation and stillness, presenting a range of dynamic inclinations across a shared material continuum. Thinking these tendencies in relation to the "sexual instincts" and the "death drive," Rite of Spring asks: how might we pursue life for its own sake, without our lives at its center?
