                Abi Adi’s teachers have worked for the past year in conditions that most of us have never experienced: they have taught in the sun, in the rain, battered by the wind and covered by the dust that the constant wind kicks up. On the verge of having a new school the teachers reflect on the challenges they faced in their old school and what they are looking forward to about the new school.

                • PURL JAM - Edgar Cardenas, Intersections of Art and Science in Dealing with Sustainability Issues

                  My research is focused on the coupling of art methods, primarily photography, and science methods for developing novel solutions and reconceptualizing ideas of the human/environment relationship. I am focused on investigating methods in art and science to see where they converge and diverge and how both are useful for the progression of sustainability. This work consists of writing about the art-science nexus, how collaboration between artists and scientists may play out, and creating visual work that personally explores the theoretical underpinnings of my written research. My photographic work deals with my experiences in my backyard. Many of us have a particular space in which we touch nature. We are not always conscious of how to use the space in any other way than how it was appropriated when we began using the space. Often times the backyard, which is commonly this space for most, gets nothing more than a grass cutting and possibly some weeding but most often it’s the only consideration we give it. How to use this space changed for me this year as I moved into a rental that had no grass in the backyard. At first I refrained from going in the backyard because I perceived it as unsightly. As the winter rains came I saw the backyard change from brown to green, becoming overgrown, I began thinking about these personal spaces we have and how they cycle. As a doctoral student in the School of Sustainability I am continuously thinking about what sustainability means, how it’s practiced, and who practices it. There are several schools of thought on how to best leverage sustainability efforts on global, regional, local, and personal scales and which are most effective; I think they all have their place. However, in theorizing we often forget about our personal practice, our need to touch the earth. I think there is significant value to the statement that if you want to change the world you must begin with yourself, this project is an exploration in radical sustainability on a household level. Beginning with the current state of the backyard how does one go about changing it for the better? What would be considered better? Can micro-ecosystems be developed in backyards? What does personal sustainability look like? These questions need exploration in order to develop legitimate answers. Finally, this project looks to bring awareness to others about our own backyards and how we use them and what we could imagine using them for if we were radical about how we touched and explored nature. As individuals we may not have significant influence regarding sustainability but as a community our decisions are compounded, we currently help shape the world we have and can have a substantial effect on how our world is reshaped in the future, all one has to do is start in their backyard.
