Presentation Title:

  • The Wilderness at Home

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • In this paper I suggest that we need a complex, fractal-like intermingling of the wilderness and city in both real and virtual space in order to create a sustainable future for human beings on the earth. I discuss Mrs. Squandertime, a persistent simulation/stimulation of the slow alpha state that is conjured by watching nature without purpose, as an example of such an intermingling.
