Kyle Parry on Trees and Physical-Virtual Borderlands: metaLAB and the Arnold Arboretum [AUDIO]

0

Say the idea is to re-awaken our feelings for plants even at our hyper-networked speed — do we want digital tools to do the re-wiring or are we convinced their auto-brightness and push notifications divert us from the living, breathing nonhuman sensorium?

Kyle Parry — a Researcher at metaLAB and a PhD student in Film and Visual Studies and Critical Media Practice at Harvard — initiates a conversation along these lines by way of a discussion of Digital Ecologies, metaLAB’s work-in-progress collaboration with Harvard’s Arnold Arboretum.
