Nature 3.x: Where is Nature Now? is a multi-disciplinary symposium that considers how the complex global environmental issues of the Anthropocene now challenge our relationship with the environment. The symposium invites a broad audience of artists, writers, design professionals and others to speculate upon emerging ideas of nature in the Anthropocene. The work is intentionally broad and includes innovative topics such as post-industrial feral landscape ecology, eco-toxic tourism, manufactured urban ecosystems, post-natural disaster resiliency planning, hypernature and technology, and genetically modified environments. The symposium will attract a broad and diverse audience including artists, landscape architects, writers, urban planners and other creative thinkers and activists concerned with the future of the urban environment.
