(Talk) Digital Naturalism: Design Framework for Working with Computers and Creatures in the Wild
Session Leaders: Andy Quitmeyer
Created By: Andy Quitmeyer
I'll be giving a talk about my research into "Digital Naturalism." (Introduction with examples here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Q-HbBKC2i4 )
Digital Naturalism investigates the role that Digital Media can play for Biological Field Work. It looks to uphold the naturalistic values of wilderness exploration, while investigating the new abilities offered by digital technology.
In particular, Digital Naturalism looks at how digital media can be used to explore animal behaviors situated in their natural context. Most recently, this research has been carried out directly in the field in the form of Hiking Hackathons.
I'll share my past and recent experiences hacking in the wilderness and future plans. Then we'll have a quick question and answer session!
