IDAT 106 Ecology and Workspaces

IDAT 106 Ecology and Workspaces

An Introduction

Here is an introductionary quote given to us in our brief:

"Ecology (from Greek: οίκος, oikos, "household"; and λόγος, logos, "knowledge")is the scientific study of the distribution and abundance of life and the interactions between organisms and their natural environment. The environment of an organism includes physical properties, which can be described as the sum of local abiotic factors such as insolation (sunlight), climate, and geology, and biotic ecosystem, which includes other organisms that share its habitat."

In this module I will be studying the key elements of social ecology. I will do this by taking photos, notating and studying the unobvious elements which effect our interactions with our surroundings and others within it. The work will be split into three workshops:

  • Time-based photograph - Picnic
  • GPS and Bluetooth
  • The Territory: Deep ecology - Live streaming and Greenscreen

This will all leed up to a final project in which I will incorporate elements from the workshops. This piece will envolve some sort of live streaming of visual information.

I will use this blog to keep track of all the work I have done and use as a workbook showing the processes I work through.
