Video Mind, Earth Mind

Art, Communications and Ecology


Paul Ryan

Video Mind, Earth Mind is a collection of texts (1968-1991) by Paul Ryan offering ideas about how video and television can be used to respond to our ecological crisis. For example, Mr. Ryan presents the development of a teachable method for using video to interpret the natural world. Based on this method, he articulates a systemic way of using television to ground human communication in ecological systems. He argues that grounding our television communications in ecological systems will help control our runaway destruction of this planet and shape ways of living on earth that are sustainable.
