World of Matter

Relevant notes from the book 'World of Matter':

  • Using art to probe the ecological realities. Pg 10

  • "the oneness of the planet" pg 11

  • Transitional move from considering nature as a 'natural resource' to an 'aesthetic-philosophical arena" pg 21

  • "Indigenous understandings of a common world infused with interconnected life, inseparable from humans and contests the separateness of nature" pg 23

  • Wandering objects: earth-seeing, by Eliza Scott - "from space we have learned that earth is a complex system, its atmosphere, ocean, land-life and energy melding together in a single organism." Pg 44

  • In the indigenous world, the indigenous form part of nature. They do not exist on one side and nature on the other, but both are intimately linked. Pg 51

  • Jane Bennett - "vibrant materialism" - imagining and seeing apparently stable objects dissolve into lively energies and resistances. Pg 68 

  • 'The force of things: steps towards an ecology of matter' pg 68
