can our artistic practices as digital and new media artists cohabit peacefully with the rest of planet? please let me know

@eriknatanael Great topic. I've been working on a project called The Screenless Office¹ that tries to exist outside of graphics intensive upgrade cycles and flashy near-instant interaction. Ironically, one of the first reactions that most people have when I tell about the work is "oh the trees!" because I use paper for a lot of output. But buying a new phone does far more environmental damage than printing, especially when you factor in that it is a renewable resource with an excellent recycling system in many places.



@praxeology Cool project, thanks for sharing! Yeah, the focus on paper seems like a distraction compared to the rapid upgrade cycles of our digital devices.
