Reflections on New Nature in the Überblog
Olivia McGilchrist, interdisciplinary multi-media artist, researcher and student responder for the New Nature virtual conference in May, invited Petra Bachmeier, Heather Davis and Tamiko Thiel to reflect about water and water pollution through the lens of their own artistic work and research.
Does the notion of “environment as freedom” offer any inroads for future collaborations with other New Nature participants through a combination of scientific data and immersive mediums, including storytelling?
Does Ranganathan’s following question resonate with your work: “What would it mean to reimagine the environment as freedom?” If so, how would you approach this with future collaborators from different fields?
From May 25-28, 2020, New Nature started with a series of online sessions, consisting of internal workshops and meetings as well as public events such as keynotes and artist talks, which will continue to manifest until December 2020 in virtual lab sessions, public online screenings and an exhibition in Montreal and in Berlin in collaboration with Retune - Creative Technology Laboratory.
