The landscape and our experience of nature remains essential to our well-being but is not considered in the equation. What Marshall McLuhan called the synaesthetic dimension of global village technology creates a hierarchy of information and images, but lessens the integrity of private thought and our unconscious volition to creative impulse.Intertwining presents a variety of articles under the themes of landscape, issues, technology and artists that encourage reflection on the intertwining of these elements in our daily life. Over forty essays and reviews in all, topics include the effects of the internet on museums and education; artists working in and around a nature park; agriculture as art; artists' response to a site first colonized by the Jesuits in the north; the artist's response to breast cancer; to animal rights; to violence and childrens' toys; to art and illness.
