Imaging and Imagining Environmental Change in the 21st Century - Hunter Vaughan
From Katie Gentilello
Over the past twenty years, we have witnessed massive increases in environmental awareness, which has coincided with a proliferation in the use of digital screen technology. While screen media help us to see, to analyze, and to understand the natural world, they also promote our detachment from it, allow us to control and to frame it, and are part of a new material global system of resource extraction, energy use, and waste disposal. "Imaging and Imagining Environmental Change" will address how screen media cultivate and shape our sensory perception and mental models of climate change, the environmental justice ramifications of these practices and processes, and how we are coming to visualize ecology in new ways.
