Towards Species Citizenship (Mo Langmuir & Samuel Collins) is an artistic collaboration, expanding the scientific definition of species to seeing life in all forms, whilst grounding their work in relation to current political frameworks. Their work is formed through collaboration with the total environment; local experts, fellow artists, scientists, folklore, environmental elements and the non-human community.
Samuel Collins is a spatial practitioner based in Copenhagen and London. He obtained a BA in architecture from the University of Sheffield (2013–2016), followed by an MA in political architecture on the subject of critical sustainability from the Royal Danish Academy of Architecture, Design & Conservation (2016–2018). In 2019, he co-founded the spatial practice STRL_ (The Strollological Technical Research Laboratory) with Sho Murayama. Focusing on landscape and ecology, their work employs walking as primary mode of environmental perception and engagement.
Mo Langmuir is a multi-disciplinary practitioner who uses social art to explore being human on a shared planet, broadening traditional Western science and knowledge-making systems to create ecological futures. Informed by a degree in BSc environmental biology from the University of Nottingham (2014–2018), her practice foregrounds process. After graduation, Langmuir worked in ecological research and artistic environmental education for projects in Nottingham/UK, Malta and the Caribbean. She now runs trauma-informed art and nature workshops for refugees, non-EU migrants and asylum seekers, connecting new arrivals to their new environments.
