Disorientation Re-presentation

A paper on the Anthropocene and the problem of representation by Lisa Taliano published in Writing Visual Culture June 2020.

This paper takes seriously Bruno Latour’s challenge to replace the blue marble with a better representation of the earth. Latour makes the provocative claim that we need to replace our conception of the earth from the well-worn planetary view defined and accepted since the beginning of modern science in order to shift our attention away from the globe to the surface of the earth, to the critical zone where all life exists. Through an analysis of two alternative representations presented by Bruno Latour in his performance/lecture, Inside, this paper explores the powers and limits of representation, focusing on the question: can philosophy, art and science, by working together, change the way we know the world, and our relationship and attitude towards it, by successfully changing our representations of it?

Collective Mapping of the Critical Zone

Inspired By Bruno Latour’s call to artists for new representations of the earth, this project is an invitation to artists, philosophers, scientist, and activists to collaborate on a collective representations of the world, as experienced from the inside. Representations in the form of mappings that trace and record the multi-layer interaction, trajectories and overlapping activity of humans and non-humans, living and non-living beings, in their collaborative making the critical zone.

R.I.P. Patrick Burns

Patrick Burns, Hybrids, 2019, Casimir Effect

Our community suffers a tremendous loss with the passing of Patrick Burns. A soulful generous painter and friend, his fluid open character made space for mutual understanding, an honest exchange of ideas, and an appreciation for our shared struggles and determination to make our experiences relevant through art. I loved hearing about his Southern Goth memories of growing up in Texas, the “mystery” of the veiled crucifixes during Lent, and his love/hate relationship for the Gulf Coast and it’s blessed/cursed nature/culture hybrid.
