Environmental humanities in transformative times – modes of thinking, acting and representing provides synthesis analyses and collaborations between artists and researchers across the four main problem areas addressed in the Seed Box program:
1) An alienation toward issues of environmental concern and a sense of nature’s intangibility in affluent, urban, or high-tech settings.
2) A view of environmental issues as primarily questions of technocratic management.
3) A predominantly negative and even apocalyptic framing of environmental discourse.
4) The compartmentalization of environmental problems from other salient matters such as the globalization of capital, the speed of technological advance, or new forms of colonialism.
