The Riga Centre for New Media Culture (RIXC)Â has published the 11th volume ofÂ Acoustic Space:
edited by Rasa Smite, Eric Kluitenberg and Raitis Smits
The publication takes a different perspective on the value of the relationship between humans, the environment and technology:
We can no longer consider technology as the alienating â€œotherâ€. The idea is that we â€œinhabitâ€ technological ecologies emphasises our connectedness to our environment (material, natural, technological) and our dependence on available resources (material, energetic, biological, cultural). Mastering these conditions is vital to our survival on this planet.
This techno-ecological perspective was the topic of theâ€Techno-Ecologiesâ€ conference in Riga November 2011. As such, some of the many contributors were conference participants, but other authors also took part in writing the book.
