Ashden Directory & Ashdenizen launch new project to find metaphors for sustainabilty

By Another Name: New Metaphors for Sustainability

To launch the Ashden Directory and Ashdenizen’s major new project on metaphors for sustainability, a new DVD was just released, devised and directed by Wallace Heim.

“Sustainability is a concept without strong or imaginative metaphors. Over the next months, we’ll ask artists, scientists, activists and cultural commentators to suggest a metaphor for sustainability.”

The first four responses are presented in the embedded video. (The film is shown at the Staging Sustainability conference, York University, Toronto, 20 – 22 April 2011.)  Updates from the project will be posted on the Ashden directory: http://www.ashdendirectory.org.uk/news.asp
