ABSTRACT

This essay is on the environmental improvement of Natalie Jeremijenko. She is a scientific expert and eco artist, who has also found scientific and concrete ways to improve the environmental health. Jeremijenko uses interactive technologies for changing the status of nonhuman. With her ecological worldview, humans and nonhuman have a symbiotic relationship. Her project, <Ooz> was the paradoxical zoo that functioned on reciprocal reactions and observations between human and nonhuman. Jeremijenko, an Associate professor in Visual Art Department, directs the ‘xCLINIC the environmental health clinic+lab’ at NYU. The artist calls modern people ‘impatient’ one in her environmental health clinic because they refuse to wait for traditional legislative change to address environmental problems. She calls public experiments and products as xDesign, such as <Robotic Geese>, <Mussel Choir>, <Amphibious Architecture>. These are public experiments and eco-products for ‘impatient’ people to monitor their contamination of soil, water, and air. She has also set up <Farmacy> program based on social-ecological movement. ‘Farmacy’, a new urban farming system, can reduce the environmental costs and offer the remedial ecosystem. The <AgBags> are the local food movements that helps people protect and improve Biological Diversity. Environmental Health Clinic can promote awareness of environmental and health issues with communities.
