Description

Despite the challenges, there is a need for humans to engage conceptually and responsibly with non-human organisms possessing entirely different physiologies and behaviours. Plants, for instance, can appear still, silent, and passive in human perception. This book stems from a pedagogical, artistic, and botanical project undertaken between 2015 and 2018 by artists Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir and Mark Wilson, plant science educators Dawn Sanders and Eva Nyberg, and botanist Bente Eriksen. The team set out to implore a philosophical and actionable move beyond the cultural condition of “plant blindness”, and so to disrupt what is a traditional and debilitating human view. Other authors include Dawn Sanders and Eva Nyberg (plant science educators), Bente Eriksen (botanist), Giovanni Aloi, (Editor in Chief of Antennae; The Journal of Nature in Visual Culture, Lynn Turner, (Visual Cultures, Goldsmiths), Ramsey Affifi, (University of Edinburgh) and Olof Gerdur Sigfúsdóttir (University of Iceland).
