Slowness in the Arts

Artists addressing slowness, duration, and acceleration

Indeterminate Hikes by ecoarttech


ecoarttech
is an art/theory collaborative with goals to create a sense of place, calm, and stillness using digital technologies. Indeterminate Hikes, is an Android app that acts as your personal guide to ecological awareness of everyday environments. By importing the national-park discourse of sublime wilderness into local places, including suburban, metropolitan, and rural settings, and rethinking how we use mobile technologies, IH transforms unexpected places into sites of bio-cultural diversity and wild happenings.

IH slows down modern life’s pace to activate consciousness of everyday locales as ecologically diverse spaces worthy of wonder, and to transform smartphones into tools of environmental imagination.
