Eco-tone 1 – Object Space Entanglements

Posted in nEws and rEleases by Curatorview on June 26, 2011

Interdisciplinary workshop supported by Nottingham Trent University School of Art and Design research fund

Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham, UK

27-28 June 2011

Eco-tone brings into proximity creative and academic practice to juxtapose modes of awareness associated with specific activities so that they are experienced beyond usual boundaries. Participants are invited to respond to the relationship of environment, ecology and ecology of practice; to form spatial relations from within which we can expect to witness resonances that enhance how practice operates.

Eco-tome aims to enhance understanding of our relationship with environment and ecology.

    Enjoyed the day and David and Jean seem keen to continue the Ecotone theme. I will investigate your Aesthetic Journalism book.
