Eco-theory is dominated by green just as Western perceptions of landscapes are dominated by maps. How does this green lens influence how we perceive, explore and exploit the world? What does it do? What is this green world really like? This keynote is an experience that exposes an unseen environment using a ‘prismatic ecology’ (Cohen, 2013); a more-than-human rainbow of colourful lenses for you to adorn. It invites you to be involved, challenged and entertained—to become a participant rather than an observer. There will be analogies, metaphor and empirical musings. We welcome you to join in the exploration of dark rhizomatic passages and discover what you never knew about lampposts but be prepared for a sting in the tale!
