The Institute of Queer Ecology (IQECO) is an ever-evolving collaborative organism that seeks to bring
peripheral solutions to environmental degradation to the forefront of public consciousness. IQECO
projects are interdisciplinary, but unified and grounded in the theoretical framework of Queer Ecology, an
adaptive practice concerned with interconnectivity, intimacy, and multispecies relationality. Guided by
queer and feminist theory and decolonial thinking, the collective works to overturn the destructive
human-centric hierarchies by imagining an equitable, multispecies future. The Institute of Queer Ecology
was founded in 2017 by Lee Pivnik while he was studying at the Rhode Island School of Design. It is
co-directed by Nicolas Baird, who joined the project shortly after its inception, and has continued to steer
its growth and focus. .
