ECOLOGY WITHOUT NATURE

Timothy Morton, Ecology Without Nature Blog, October 20, 2016

"He's doing work with NASA and he's documenting melting ice. He makes gigantic, suitably scaled images that you can't contain in one gulp. They are fascinating from a scalar point of view: how far away are we when we see them? This kind of scale confusion is intrinsic to ecological awareness.


Guariglia is devoted to ecological issues such as global warming--I say devoted because it's certainly a lot more than committed."
