Greening Frankenstein : Innovation for Sustainability (Hardcover) (Kurt Seemann & Matthew Parnell & Dora
About this item
This book aims to publish a new message and novel ideas into the literature that links design, technology and sustainability. We are aiming, through research and critical exposition, to articulate new conceptual tools to describe and critique the made world. The book targets policy, professional and academic audiences concerned with sustainability culture and practice. Through practical illustrations and our body of research we will offer alternative narratives for how we ought think about the meanings of the labels we use to define the made world (our frankenstein) and how our 'frankenstein' is systemically part of us and part of ecology by design and by nature. We will reveal to the reader how the technological world we have created is ontologically systemic and co-evolves necessarily with our ecology while it also transforms our human identity: we are part of technology, technology is part of us, and we are both part of ecology.
