Critical Ecosystems

Seminar at DEAF07 about ecology and technology.

Apr 2007
10:00 to 13:00
location: V2_Groundfloor, Eendrachtsstraat 10

In this seminar, technological systems - which are often described as if they were living entities - meet the current debate on environmental issues. Critical Ecosystems investigates tactical approaches to technology-related ecological issues and cultural activism. What are viable design approaches for new mediated ecologies? How can environmental problems be addressed from an artistic, technological or cultural perspective?
