This publication is about two events on the impact of the climate crisis on the seas and the marine environments: “From the Mediterranean to the Pacific. Dialogues across the seas” (in Cervia, Italy) and “The ocean that keeps us apart also joins us: charting knowledge and practice in the Anthropocene” (at ISEA 2020 “Why Sentience?” in Montreal).
Meta.Morf 2022 – Ecophilia
Nature has gone estranged. Our link to it is more important than ever. Our home planet needs our care and love. This is what Ecophilia is about. And you cannot avoid it. Nature is all about your lifeworld. Where you live, how you live and how you love it. Ecophilia reflects not only a necessity, but also a deep desire to connect with nature. But what is nature really? Except for some ecological dreamscapes?

The Climate crisis and the sea rising. The art*science – Art & Climate Change project in Cervia
The Anthropocene imposes a reflection about the time span of the human species and cultures in contrast to that of the individuals, requires a vision extended to a remote future that should be governed knowing that people will not be part of it. This implies a cognitive leap, a different consideration of humanity and its relationship with the “non human” and the environment, intended as a complex dynamic intercourse, towards a further level of awareness in a new pact with the existing. In the An...

Sopravvivere all’Antropocene: dialoghi sull’estinzione e l’emergenza
Chi di noi frequenta i social media è ormai abituato ad assistere a una continua litania di notizie, video, immagini (più o meno fake, più o meno sensazionali) che ci avvertono di trovarci in un periodo di forte trasformazione. Il cambiamento climatico, l’imminente estinzione di animali e insetti, la scomparsa del paesaggio naturale a causa della speculazione umana, sono tutti fenomeni sintomatici di una nuova era che ormai è entrata a far parte del gergo popolare: l’Antropocene.
The sixth extinction may well claim us; considering what our species has done to the rest of life, we may deserve to go extinct, sooner rather than later. But I hope that we survive. [...] Much of our habitat seems likely to be lost. However, if we survive there will be song and dance, stories and drawings. These are what human beings have always done best. One way or another we will have a new culture, genuinely new. Many new cultures may arise, some, perhaps most, beyond imagining today.
FOR – The Festival for the Earth. Sustainable Visions in Art and Science
We aim to contribute to shaping a new, more sustainable future, with positive and constructive messages on how human-kind can co-exist with nature in a changed environment and how we can transform climate change in a new wave of opportunity for all. We shape our messages with the contribution of economists, managers, environmental activists, corporate entities at the forefront of environmental innovation, but also artists, whose special sensibility and absence of boundaries can help breaking ba...
One Community / More Responsibility
[ITA] Conferenza e workshop a cura di Marcello Signorile e Pier Luigi Capucci Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino, 7-10 Maggio 2019 Guarda Lontano + art*science - Art & Climate Change [ENG] Conference and workshops curated by Marcello Signorile and Pier Luigi Capucci Fine Arts Academy of Urbino, 7-10 May 2019 Guarda Lontano + art*science - Art & Climate Change
Climate Leviathan is an essential book. I recommend it to anyone concerned about the future. However, it would have been an even better book if it were less nostalgic for lost certainties of the left. That would have made its panorama of the future even darker, but simultaneously may have revealed more than four political possibilities.
