Ensayos is a collective research practice initiated on the archipelago of Tierra del Fuego in 2010. Ensayos’ issue-based research methodologies arise from archipelagic delirium and are characterized by their sensuality and precariousness. Drawing on the existing conservation initiatives in Tierra del Fuego (WCS Parque Karukinka, Caleta Maria, and the Selk’nam Corporation Covadonga Ona), Ensayos insists on experimental practices that entangle artistic and social science methods with the environmental research efforts already underway.

SCORE #4: Governing the Commons

Read the chapter assigned to your group from the book “Governing the Commons” by Elinor Ostrom with a ‘soft focus’ as if it is poetry. Underline or highlight words and phrases that seem interesting to you. When you’ve read the whole chapter, make a list of the words and short phrases that you have marked. Do this on a blank document or sheet of paper. Then, move those phrases around on the page, looking for ‘common’ meanings. Speak your new common groupings out loud, sing them,
repeat them, find a way for them to live in sound so they can be shared orally. Make a recording that is between 1 and 3 minutes.
