“The unit of survival is organism plus environment. We are learning by bitter experience that the organism which destroys its environment destroys itself.” – Gregory Bateson
Living in the 21st Century it is hard not to be surrounded by technology. In a man-made environment that embraces consumption and production we have depleted the world of its resources, consuming materials to further support our lust for contemporary technologies.
To highlight this issue of man's influence on nature, I am specifically interested in how technology is crossing the boundary between the inorganic and organic, how technology is including itself into natural systems and exposing how nature reacts to this contact.
