ECOARTTECH: Selected Works Fall 2007

untitled2_icon_ipod.jpgUntitled Landscapes For Portable Media Players, 2007: These were influenced by a class we have both recently been teaching called “Challenge of Modernity.” We almost titled these untitled landscapes “Industrial Revolution.” They are intended to be downloaded as a series of four, shuffled on the playlist of your personal media player, and viewed at random. MP4, WMV, and AVI file formats are all available.

Frontier Mythology, 2007 (Documentation of Installation Version) – 24.1MB: A mobile, solar-powered environmental digital video and FM radio installation made of recycled shipping pallets. Three portable multimedia players inhabit a primitive, lean-to structure displaying videos of diverse contemporary environments while a transistor radio picks up a pirate radio transmission reciting quotations from classical works of U.S. Literature that both develop and critique the frontier myth that informs American constructions of land, nature, and wilderness. Originally designed to be located along a remote section of the Appalachian Trail.

Frontier_MixV1.0.mp3 – 15MB, 2007: An audio mp3 selection of literary quotes read by computer voice “Vicki” pertaining to the American frontier from authors including Ursula K. Le Guin, Willa Cather, Cormac McCarthy, Samuel Clemens, Leslie Marmon Silko, Frederick Jackson Turner, F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, Edward Abbey, John Steinbeck, Owen Wister, and St. John de Crèvecoeur. Add this to your mp3 player.

ECOARTTECH: Ecology, Art, and Technology (aka ecoarttech) was formed by Cary Peppermint and Christine Nadir in 2005 with the aim of working with digital and sustainable technologies and contemporary environments to create art about the environmentality of modern life. As the name of our collective suggests, we are concerned with the intersections and exchanges between the categories and definitions of nature, wilderness, technics, and technology. Our approach to this project is interdisciplinary: we draw on ideas in digital art, critical theory, ecology, eco-art, environmental literature, environmental philosophy, ecocriticism, and environmentalist activism. Recent ecoarttech projects have engaged and/or will continue engage the following issues: critiques of nature and wilderness as viable categories to ground environmental ethics, the question of whether human use of technology is ecologically a fault or a strength, the relation of the digital to the natural, the expansion of the imagination of what constitutes technology, the inseparability of nature from culture and vice versa, technology’s mediation of environments, the experience of local spaces in the context of globality, the transformation of technology into a (global) system during modernization, historical and cultural constructions of land and space, the relation of new media technologies to humans’ primordial use of technics (tools or skills that transform raw materials and/or produce comfort and pleasure). Exploring these questions, ecoarttech ultimately seeks to imagine new, healthy, and sustainable relationships between humans and their environments and technologies.
