How do we sense our surroundings? How does artistic research foster novel environmental sensibilities? This book gathers essays on artistic methods and ecological thinking developed as part of the Environment, Data, and Contamination research studio at the Academy of Fine Arts Helsinki.
Led by Samir Bhowmik (University of the Arts, Helsinki) and Jussi Parikka (Aarhus University, Denmark), the studio explored alternative ways of engaging with “data” as materialized in specific landscapes and elemental media.
