Perception and Narrative
Seminars under the perception and narrative framework will work towards a reassessment of the available tools for communicating and experiencing, in order to reconfigure the troubled relationship between humans and the world. This reassessment is not be limited to media in the strict sense, and will include all the ways in which we change our surroundings and can be said to produce meaning. To thrive in the Anthropocene, we must discard imperialist and anthropocentric practices by sensing and representing our environment and its occupants in ways that are truthful to their eco-social roles. Participants may choose one of three seminars dedicated to perception and narrative organization—Funny Animals, The Sonic Ecology of the Tourist City, and Building, Dwelling, Thinking in the Anthropocene.
