Virtual Exhibition: PLANT BEINGS

Explorations of Digital Art, Biology & Speculative Design

ART20K: Intro to Digital Art & New Media 

A ten-week remote course taught by Professor Jennifer Parker for Art Majors at UC Santa Cruz during the pandemic of spring 2021.

Inspired by Anna Tsings Feral Atlas project and her argument  “that invasion develops as a relationship between an organism and an infrastructure,” this class focused on two main questions:  1) How can digital art embrace radical modes of eco-social experimentation as biodesign to reveal the interconnected relationships of ecologies and humans? 2) Can virtual Human-Plant relationships inform our future with multi-species communities as a tool to support empathy and expand public awareness of more-than-human life on the planet?
