Unruly Ecologies: Biodiversity and Art
A SymbioticA Symposium Exploring Art, Ecology & Action

The ecology of biodiversity is based upon an uncertain definition, incomplete statistics and the need to act in a world without balance. While multiple flora and fauna databases have been established and are being coordinated, and as natural biodiversity diminishes and more technological life forms come into being, there is an urgent need to engage even more proactively with complex ecosystems and human responses. Artists, scientists, humanities scholars and conservationists will come together for Unruly Ecologies: Biodiversity and Art to talk of "matters of concern" around the potentials and futures of biodiversity.
