Ecologicity: Vision and Art for a World to Come

Ecologicity: Vision and Art for a World to Come considers the aesthetic and perceptual dimensions of visualizing the ecological condition. I theorize the interplay between artistic propositions for inhabiting the planet and the readjusted parameters of perception demanded by ecology. I ask, how does visual culture mediate our capacity to think ecologically? How does ecology transform perceptual limits, compelling us to refigure environments? On what terms can one define an ethics of artistic practice geared toward a contested future? (In progress).
