The non-conformance of human experience with conditions of the current world capture a turbulent incompatibility of our moment: the condition of planetarity. The human centred forces that have driven processes of globalization have yielded planetary consequences wherein the human has become decentred as a primary agent. Elsewhere ‘planetarity’ has been upheld in ethical contradistinction to a concretely globalized world, where ‘ethics’ can be understood as a demand for new genres of constitutive morphisms or qualities of relation. The planetary has yet to be adequately spatialized, meaning it is an unsituated concept without a site for operational interaction. The planetary has yet to be worlded.
