This one is easy to read and makes sense supporting the thinking behind the book and giving comparisons and linkage to ANT

Denser read but supports Bennett yet says this is more a political framing – for political action than a philosophical frame.

“It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea, though changed in a sinister way, will continue to exist: the threat is rather to life itself.”

When Vines Talk: Community, Art, and Ecology

In what follows, I consider how art education contributes to assisting the environment, how it can reverse the estrangement students often feel

with the natural world, and forge a sustainable1 vision of education by referencing a local case study that used invasive vines as a medium. First, I examine the recent background of art education that has inspired a closer look at local/regional art practices. In the subsequent discussion of the region where I live, I establish a sense of place that allows readers a better

understanding of an emergent art practice in southern Illinois. Through a study that examines various community perspectives about the art form and the region, I explain art education as embodied local knowledge that

we can cultivate. With this in mind, I conclude by noting that eco educator David Orr’s (1994) concept o?biophilia can explain what it

means to live with a reverence for the Earth, within a community that can act creatively and intelligently?for the good of all life?where memory

meets imagination.

Place as embodied knowledge;
