They include such disciplines as fine art, graphic design, illustration, photography,
printmaking, sculpture, 3D design, interaction design, product design, textile and fashion design, film-making, animation, games design, music, dance, drama, creative writing, poetry, interior design, architecture, and urban design.
Proposal for a special issue of Digital Creativity Vol 25 No 4
Call for papers
In this special issue, they explore the emergent practice known broadly as ‘Arts & Ecology’, a set of practices in which arts practice engages with the natural world.
Practice might be issues-based or activist in nature, or may simply have a desire to reflect upon or engage directly with nature or ecology. This special issue of the journal seeks writers, theorists, practitioners, and other researchers who can reflect on this practice and on emerging and emergent uses of digital technologies within it. Can it be said that there is a new awareness of and a newly-emergent practice of nature writing? Are ecological artists using technologies in different ways? Do
ecological pressure impact upon how we use, develop and fuel our technologies? Can renewable energy play a part in a technological arts practice? Are digital technologies changing the ways in which people can engage with the natural world? How are cultural practices remixing the digital world with the more-than-human and other-than-human worlds? We welcome philosophical and/or theoretical reflection as well as detailed descriptions of practice or critique.
