Nature Metaphors in Virtual Landscapes

NatureThe Wild Surmise brings together a complex legacy of thinking and writing about the natural world with contemporary views of computers and the internet drawn from texts, personal interviews, surveys, and of course the web itself.

The result will be both critical and lyrical, a creative narrative of the many ways in which we use our experiences of nature to situate and comprehend our experiences of cyberspace.

This project was funded by a British Academy Small Research Grant for travel, including Visiting Scholarship to University of California Santa Barbara.
