Item description for Ecomedia by Sabine Himmelsbach...
In recent years the idea of ecology as a communications system in which humans, animals and organic materials occupy equivalent status has gained in authority. To whose advantage and disadvantage are ecosystems destroyed? What consequences do these hold for those involved? How can the needs and interests of dispossessed parties be given voice? What are the viable alternatives to ecological decimation? These are among the questions that art can now usefully propose. Featuring essays by Sabine Himmelsbach, Karin Ohlenschlager and Yvonne Volkart, Ecomedia; Ecological Strategies in Art Today surveys recent discussions on ecosystems, sustainability, renewable energy, envisionings of the future and the complex question of the roles that art and new media might play in this context--discussions which science, technology and ecological activism have so far neglected to initiate.
