Cambiamenti climatici e paure collettive
La comunicazione assume toni allarmistici, eppure... nella nostra “economia dell’attenzione”, risorsa scarsa nel moltiplicarsi di appelli drammatici, la ripetizione e la pluralità dei messaggi di fonti diverse ha spesso effetti controproducenti. La paura, più che spingere all’azione o a cambiamenti di comportamento (di cui vorremmo vedere subito gli effetti) alimenta un immaginario catastrofico.

This major presentation highlights how artists and scientists work together to imagine the future, today.
