Art, Science - Ecologies of Change
Limited Capacity seats available

Gordon Knox, Greg Esser. ASU Museum.

The presentation will provide an overview of Desert Initiative, a regional and global collaboration connecting desert communities through artist-led research and projects that investigate pressing critical issues of our time and place as contemporary societies in urbanizing desert environments.

The presentation will examine the potential for collaboration between artists, scientists and other researchers to drive innovation, shift cultural behaviors, communicate ideas and find solutions to challenges. Through a series of collaborative, artist-driven projects, Desert Initiative is developing a new post-disciplinary framework to forge new pathways into a more resilient future and cultivating ecologies of change.

Interdisciplinary Dialogue - Ecologies of Change
Ron Broglio, Sabine Feisst, Thomas Puleo, Adriene Jenik, Kevin McHugh, Sha Xin Wei, Mark Lussier

This panel will discuss the possibilities and implications of a posthuman phenomenology. What does it mean to listen to a radical other and how does one appeal to the ear of the other--be it human, nonhuman, inhuman, living or dead, stranger or friend. How is dialogue possible and what are some models?

Special presentation - Eric Leonardson is the chair of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology and will discuss the practice, history and conceptual basis for Acoustic Ecology. http://wfae.proscenia.net

The World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE), founded in 1993, is an international association of affiliated organizations and individuals in Europe, North America, Japan, and Australia that share a common concern with the state of the world's soundscapes. WFAE members represent a multi-disciplinary spectrum of individuals engaged in the study of the social, cultural and ecological aspects of the sonic environment.

International WFAE conferences are held throughout the world with the most recent ones hosted in Mexico City (2009), Koli Finland (2010), and Corfu Greece (2011). 

WFAE'S Mission:

WFAE works in collaboration with its world-wide network of Affiliated Organizations to promote:

Education - in listening to the soundscape, sharpening aural awareness and deepening listeners' understanding of environmental sounds and their meanings

Research and Study - of the social, cultural, scientific and ecological aspects of the sonic environment

Publishing and Distributing of information and research on Acoustic Ecology.

Protecting and Preserving existing natural soundscapes and times and places of quiet. 

Designing and Creating healthy and acoustically balanced sonic environments.

  Symposium, Panel
  • Abstract Eric Leonardson: “Acoustic Ecology and Ethical Listening” What is "Ethical Listening"? This presentation introduces the fundamental role of listening in everyday experience, the arts, sciences, and humanities. As 2014 is the centennial year of the death of “Martha” the last passenger pigeon, a species that once flourished in North America by the billions, and hunted to extinction within less than a century. Ethical listening offers one non-obvious way to balance information with intuition, and reflection, about animal encounters in the urban wilderness, with hope for the possibilities of social and ecological recovery from extinction. Recent global and local activities in sound making and listening offer models for public engagement in soundscape awareness and critical citizenship.
