Cary Peppermint and Leila Nadir have worked collaboratively as EcoArtTech, an environmental new media collective, since 2005. Cary and Leila form a new media art duo that has been working on studying the environmental imagination and exploring sense of place.
Their work focuses on being able to examine surrounding environments and consider the effect that humans have on those spaces.
An example of one of their artworks is the mobile app called Indeterminate Hikes (+). This app re-appropriates smartphones by turning them into a tool that can inspire environmental imagination by slowing people down and moving them to have wonder in and appreciate their surroundings. Check out my fellow FLEFF blogger Kayla Reopelle’s post about a personal Indeterminate Hike to get a feel for the experience of the app.
You can also visit Cary and Leila’s website to explore some of the different projects that Cary and Leila have been working on through EcoArtTech.
Cary Peppermint and Leila Nadir will be speaking at Ithaca College in Park 223 at 10:00 a.m., discussing their new media project, EcoArtTech.
They will also be present in the Park Auditorium at Ithaca College on Thursday, April 3, at 2:35 p.m.
