The complexities of ecologies

11 Mar

This week I thought I would do a mind map to work through some of the different interpretations of ecologies, in particular media ecologies. I was particularly drawn to Felix Guattari’s theory that the ecologies of the mind, society and the environment can join together in order to create positive change in the world. Moreover, that their differences can set them apart from other political structures and people can become part of a democratic network instead of been stifled by hierarchical structures. I really want to explore this idea further in my final research assignment and perhaps relate it to digital technology.
