Environment 2.0: Through Cracks in the Pavement

Leonardo Guest  Editor: Drew Hemment

The second call for papers of the Leonardo special  project 
Lovely Weather: Artists and Scientists on the Cultural 
Context  of Climate Change seeks new cross-disciplinary 
thinking on sustainability  in urban environments, with a 
focus on creative intervention, social  change and 
non-Western perspectives.

In urban environments we are  separated from the consequences 
of our actions as surely as the tarmac of  the road cuts us 
off from the earth beneath. This physical boundary  
encourages a phenomenological separation. It is also a 
symptom and a  driver of a global reliance on the private car 
and fossil fuel. But  between the cracks in the pavement, 
another world flourishes---local  activism, recycling, 
environmental collectives, permaculture, urban  gardening.

Artistic and social projects can widen the cracks in the  
pavements. Such creative innovations might be artworks, 
social  entrepreneurship, scientific intervention or 
innovations that harness  everyday creativity. They might 
seek to decode the complex relationships  between people, 
nature and technology in urban settings. Or they might be  
conceived as interventions that can help contribute to 
profound social  change, or suggest alternative possibilities 
for or critical perspectives  on sustainability.

A new relationship is emerging as computing migrates  into 
the environment. When the Earth is mapped, tagged and 
digitized,  it ceases to be inert raw material and becomes 
instead navigable,  computable and manipulable. How will this 
affect the way that industrial  societies have viewed the 
environment as a resource to be exploited and  tamed?

Leonardo is soliciting texts that document the works of  
artists, researchers, and scholars involved in the 
exploration of  sustainability in urban environments. Themes 
and issues may  include:

• Sustainability in urban environments
• Ubiquitous,  pervasive, locative and mobile communication 
technology
• Growing  community
• Sowing seeds of social change.

Linked activity includes  an Urban Climate Camp forum at 
ISEA2008 in Singapore in August 2008, and  an exhibition and 
workshop at Futuresonic 2009 in Manchester, U.K., during  May 
2009, < _http://www.futuresonic.com_ (http://www.futuresonic.com)  >.  
Submissions are welcome 
in all linked strands of activity.

Authors  are encouraged to submit manuscripts or proposals to 
< [log in to unmask] (mailto:[log in to unmask])  >. 
Leonardo submission 
guidelines can be found of Leonardo  On-Line: 
< _www.leonardo.info_ (http://www.leonardo.info)  >. Please indicate your 
proposal is for 
Environment  2.0.
