Issue V
The Issue of Narcissism

Narcissus is pretty. Narcissus doesn’t love you.
ECOCORE exploits Narcissus as the symbol of the modern subject. Our imagination of the subject is made intricate by new perspectives on identity, the virtual, transcendence and how our aesthetic embodiment relates to capitalism. What are we as subjects and why is this question so often explored as a discourse of the body? What is our ‘nature’, and how do we get to it? How do we commune with the external as if it weren’t hostile? How do we cultivate an environment we want to participate in? Our psychic/social ecology meets with the environmental in haemorrhage of inner to outer.
Narcissism is pathologised as a personality disorder/a phenomenon/a force that affects our precarious relation to the other. Our tech-driven, screen-gazing society enables a solipsistic narcissism, to the extent that we can identify it as typical of our cultural mood, our pixelated age. Narcissism is easily read as a destructive impulse towards extinguishing otherness, but is also identified as a traumatised and debilitated loving in which the only happy love can be the contained self-love by which all libidinal investment belongs to the ego.
Your mouth is the only part of yourself that you can kiss in the mirror.

E-C-O-C-O-R-E is a bi-annual ecology xine.

ECOCORE aims to explore the camouflaged souls of ecology.

ECOCORE addresses the improper valuation given by hyper consumption to shared, finite, natural resources. Negative externalities born by public and subsidised lives are calling for a re-examination of the “good cause”.

ECOCORE recognises that ecology’s identity has been repressed or relegated to area’s where it ought not to be. Relying on prettiness as a tool to convey its’ ideas, ECOCORE strives to furtively edit ecology’s muddled identity and environmental awareness.

There are many new leading actors, decision makers, and partnerships that play increasingly important roles in what happens to the natural world. The proliferating complexity, immediacy, and ubiquity of environmental crises therefore demand novel and unusual human responses towards this new eco-governance.

ECOCORE is made by Alessandro Bava
