An online platform for creative initiatives in political ecology titled At Vanishing Point. Containing newly commissioned and republished essays, audio-visual work and writing by thirty internationally based artists, academics and activists. By including work and writing from diverse localities and disciplines, it aims to gather a multitude of perspectives and contribute to the deactivation of capitalist, anthropocentric logics.

Launched during the 2017 Glasgow School of Art postgraduate degree show, as part of an installation of work by New Zealand based artist Louise Oates, alongside a programme of tolkit writing workshops that invited the public to take part in collectively imagining alternative futures, focussing on an expanded notion of care that encompasses the non-human within acts of support and community-making.
