A reminder of the thematic framework
"Developing the culture to create a sustainable civilisation"
Integrating indigenous perspectives with creative, environmental, scientific and academic
views on reality is essential to a sustainable future. At the same time, computing and
digital media are changing our relationship to culture and the environment.
On the one hand digital technology allows us to analyse and display data in new ways, as
when anthropologists use language databases to shed light on the movement of culture.
On the other hand digital technology adds to our senses, and extends them beyond the body
to the forests and the land. Scientists, artists and others are transforming the
environment into an organism, as Maori and indigenous peoples have always known it to be.
SCANZ 2013: 3rd nature will bring together diverse people to discuss how to approach
working together across culture, discipline and media. We must work together to resolve
the issues emerging at the boundary between fresh knowledge and deep knowledge, beginning
with sharing knowledge and projects.
