Understanding Darwin as an agent of Empire, Systems of classification, taxonomy and theories of evolution were tools through which empire was allowed to ‘progress’ and order the world. Species collected, hierarchically categorised, put-on display, and investigated according to usefulness and ‘value’ are at odds with ecological practices that can be seen in indigenous contexts and understandings that are post-anthropocentric. Far from being the neutral objective scientific endeavour it is often claimed to be, taxonomical systems created and reinforced dominant hierarchical logics, erasing indigenous knowledges, ostracising the ‘other’ from politics. This is an attempt to address the complex history of classification and segregation through a speculative practice to counter, subvert and make clear what has been erased. But more specifically to explore what has slipped through these systems, breached these constructed convention and boundaries.
