Abstract

Snæbjörnsdóttir/Wilson delivered a conference paper on 'You Must Carry Me Now - The Cultural Lives of Endangered Species' at the annual conference of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts, Rice University, Houston, Texas. The pair's book “You Must Carry Me Now - The Cultural Lives of Endangered Species” was launched at the conference discussion on 14th November. “In our often belated attempts to steward, care for or ‘repair’ environments – when individual animals and animal populations are transformed from beings and societies into data, what of consequence is really captured – and importantly, what is lost? The project investigates tensions and cooperation among scientific, public, and corporate stakeholders in how we have managed the wilds and the public lands. As the artists capture the complexity of human groups each vying for their ideas about the future of endangered species, the art work becomes a figure for the larger difficulty of realizing any sustainable future. Who is included in the future and at what cost?” Snæbjörnsdóttir/Wilson.
