Umwelten : “Where classical science saw a single world that comprised within it all living species hierarchically ordered…Uexkull instead supposes an infinite variety of perceptual worlds that…are all perfectly equal & linked together…The fly, the dragonfly, & the bee that we observe flying next to us on a sunny day do not move in the same world as the one in which we observe them, nor do they share with us – or with each other – the same time & the same space.” -Giorgio Agamben  http://usandthem-umwelten.blogspot.com.au/

In times of economic crisis both art and conservation funding is cut, raising questions on their value to culture and society. http://crumblingecologies.blogspot.com.au/p/about.html
