Today, humanity faces an urgent climate crisis. What impacts have the ubiquity of computers and computational representations of the environment had on public and scientific understandings in light of this crisis? As the Earth becomes mapped, tagged and digitized, what new relationships are emerging between climate, science and society?
This theme invites the works of artists, researchers and scholars involved in decoding the complex relationships between people, nature and technology and in shaping social change in the age of climate crisis. Areas of interest include but are not limited to: ubiquitous, locative and mobile technology, sustainability, social entrepreneurship, scientific intervention and creative innovations.
