The Energy Emergency Repair Kit (E.E.R.K.) is a collaboratively authored provocation to explore myriad ecological, cultural, and political resonances of the three concepts named in its title: energy, emergency, and repair.

The Energy Emergency Repair Kit (E.E.R.K.) is a collaboratively authored provocation to explore myriad ecological, cultural, and political resonances of the three concepts named in its title: energy, emergency, and repair. The E.E.R.K combines image, text, and sound to riff on the idea of a repair manual—that staple genre of self-help and self-making—while exploring energy emergency and energy emergence in several entangled registers. Prompted by the urgency of climate change, the hot air of CCS, and, the malignity of business-as-usual, racial-fossil capitalism, E.E.R.K. brings together theory and poetics in a novel mode of research-creation so as to provoke and inspire critical inquiry and creative imagining about what could come next. If energy emergencies loom everywhere, what possibilities for care and repair might they ignite.
