EA 135 PZ -NatureWorks: Aesthetics & Praxis in the Anthropocene
Description: This course explores the ecology of expressive culture, focusing on environmentally themed art. Our investigations of the practice and theory of art are focused on how art mediates in the Anthropocene: the epoch that coincides when human activities began to have a significant global impact on Earth’s ecosystems. We investigate the ecological dimensions of human ideologies and how art mediates between the human and the more-than-human worlds. As our relationship with Nature becomes increasingly tenuous through a variety of mechanisms, we are challenged to be attentive to how to employ creative practice to reintegrate ourselves with natural systems around us.
