SCREEN ECOLOGIES: ART, MEDIA AND THE ENVIRONMENT IN THE ASIA-PACIFIC REGION. Larissa Hjorth et al. MIT Press, Cambridge, 2016. Leonardo. 220 pp. with 62 ills. 24 x 19 cm. LC 2015-39891 ISBN 9780262034562 In English.
Publisher's description: Images of environmental disaster and degradation have become part of our everyday media diet. This visual culture focusing on environmental deterioration represents a wider recognition of the political, economic, and cultural forces that are responsible for our ongoing environmental crisis. And yet efforts to raise awareness about environmental issues through digital and visual media are riddled with irony, because the resource extraction, manufacturing, transportation, and waste associated with digital devices contribute to environmental damage and climate change. Screen Ecologies examines the relationship of media, art, and climate change in the Asia-Pacific region -- a key site of both environmental degradation and the production and consumption of climate-aware screen art and media. Screen Ecologies shows how new media and visual artists provide alternative ways for understanding the entanglements of media and the environment in the Asia-Pacific.
