Towards an Ecosophical Praxis of New Media
Armstrong, Keith M. (2003) Towards an Ecosophical Praxis of New Media. In Miles, Adrian (Ed.) MelbourneDAC 2003 Streamingworlds, 5th International Digital Arts & Culture Conference May 2003, May 2003, RMIT University School of Applied Communication Melbourne, Australia.
We live under the enduring shadow of ecological crisis. Contemporary theorists have suggested that this ‘problem of ecology’ indicates a more general crisis of human subjectivity. Having observed much new media art praxis operates largely without awareness of the ecological implications of those practices I began developing new processes for conceptualising and developing media art works which I termed ‘Ecosophical’. My objective was to discover whether such works could be used to create contexts within which participants might reflect upon connections between the ‘problem of ecology’ and the proposed problem of human subjectivity.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
