in the North
In the elist guest discussion on Art and Ecology on the Synapse (Australian Network for Art and Science) one German commentator questioned why an artist from the Southern hemisphere was making a project in the North. it makes sense to me as I am also going to further this research with other work with an environmental organisation in the Southern hemisphere. Although there is a lot of dialogue focussing on 'the local' in art and sociological projects , I think it is still important to keep International dialogue going by actually going places. Although my one plane flight might have expended more energy and emitted more CO2 than working at home can I be partially redeemed by carbon off-sets?
