Towards a Connective and Ecosophical New Media Art Practice
ABSTRACT: In this chapterI elaborate upon the ecosophical principles that have influenced the design of Intimate Transactions. I also reflect upon the iterative design process and the progress of Intimate Transactions towards its current iteration as a participatory, embodied,networked and collaborative new media artwork. By charting the gradual refinement of its design, I will show how this project has come to fulfil writer Suzi Gablik’s prediction of an art that facilitates an understanding of complex ecological concerns and social participation.
