This book is published by 284 Publishers Gothenburg and edited by Mark Wilson & Ron Broglio. It has a foreword by Gordon Knox, director of ASU Museum and an introduction by senior curator Heather Sealy Linberry and essays by: Æsa Sigurjónsdóttir, Ron Broglio, Fröydi Laszlo, Cary Wolfe, Amanda Boetzkes, and Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir & Mark Wilson. “In our often belated attempts to steward, care for or ‘repair’ environments – when individual animals and animal populationas 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.
