#8 Natural


Man vs. nature. Man vs. wild.

There is a general consensus, a way of thinking, established long ago, that distinguishes human beings from the rest of the natural world. It’s a way of thinking that has not only persisted, but been amplified, positioning nature as our adversary.

We are audience to the beginnings of seismic environmental changes, changes which have obliged us to re-examine our relationship with “nature”, this thing-of-which-we-are-not-a-part, for the sake of preserving ourselves as a species.

Are things really so simple? Is it just a question of “us” and “it”?

This issue examines humanity’s interaction with the “natural”: our relation to it, or rather, our place within it.
