11 July 2022 between 09:00 – 18:00 at the Old Observatory in Leiden, the Netherlands.
In a world with 75% of the planet’s land surface experiencing measurable human pressure, the way people imagine their social whole substantially impacts the planetary environment itself. However, tools used for portraying the Earth’s environment are neither neutral nor societally inclusive. To overcome that, transdisciplinary artworks and methods showcased by More-than-Planet aim to open a discussion on how technologies and drivers behind their development matter at reducing pressure on the environment.
The symposium will showcase some of the iconic art-driven transdisciplinary collaborations addressing the shared understanding of socio-environmental troubles and discuss the necessary next steps.
More-than-Planet is part of a collaboration between S+T+ARTS initiative (Waag and Ars Electronica) and the Leiden University.
