How to appreciate anew our involvements in and with matter? How to account for the distinctive forms that the material world and 'us humans' in it are taking in current times, while these forms interlink scales from socioeconomic and artefactual production to altering ecosystems and the molecular compositions of life? How to consider aesthetics beyond the assessment of cultural expressive patterns as the initial impingement of the world's materialities from physical locales to mediatised textures upon us? How does this impingement incite our bodies-minds into feeling and thinking? How can we acknowledge, then, the teeming interfaces of 'us' and 'the world'? At those interfaces, categories such as these are not yet neatly separable.
