“Our increasing knowledge of climate change ends all kinds of ideas, bit it begins other ones. The essence of these new ideas is the notion of coexistence — that is after all what ecology profoundly means,” – Timothy Morton, “Transmissions from the Uncanny Valley,” p. 20
Mice grow human ears on their backs in laboratories and rabbits glow in the dark. In this new age of ecological awareness, “Nature” as a Romantic ideal—a pristine mountainside beyond the scope of human influence—is but a dithering spirit. Rather than succumbing to the pang of this loss, GHOST NATURE exposes the limits of human perspective in the emergent landscape that remains: a slippery network of sometimes monstrous creatures, plants, and technological advances.
