Reconciliation with the Cats Wang, Jiling


This project investigates the cat eradication program on Christmas Island, Australia, through the lens of Landscape Architecture. By focusing on the unequal power relations between people and animals, Reconciliation with the Cats extends environmental issues into social issues and asks for a radical change in human society through landscape design and intervention. It opens opportunities to redefine the relationships between human, animals, and nature, and showcases an alternative future for Christmas Island.
