I See Something You Don't See: Causality & Climate Change

Short thesis

Drinking water from a plastic bottle kills a marine bird somewhere, buying tomatoes grown in a greenhouse murders a whale. Causality, the relation between cause and effect, is the brain’s way of organizing data and we are hardwired to perceive causality. In the age of the anthropocene causality is broken.

Description

Drinking water from a plastic bottle kills a marine bird somewhere, buying tomatoes grown in a greenhouse murders a whale. Causality, the relation between cause and effect, is the brain’s way of organizing data and we are hardwired to perceive causality. In the age of the anthropocene causality is broken.

In this talk, Dr. Yoldas will present the Kitty AI: Artificial Intelligence for Governance, Global Warming Hot Yoga Studio, an Ecosystem of Excess and other artworks as case studies to approach causality, imperceptibility and the Anthropocene as a problem of aesthetics.
