This study session of Calculative Environments (curated by Theo Reeves-Evison) at Nottingham Contemporary attends to the question of eco-aesthetic ‘scale effects’. How does the world or reality (environment) make itself known to us and us to it (ecologically)? Dr Wood Roberdeau (Goldsmiths) will consider this question by looking at how things manifest and how appearances become nuanced. Human capacity for calculation, measurement, and translation will be compared and contrasted with the phenomenal earth and our participation with ‘others’ in their Umwelt.
