1. Please look through images and resources provided in the TELI 2012 Research Guide – Digital Design Studio imagesas we will be using these images on Tuesday to create our short videos.
More specifically, read the articles relevant to your topic (Urban Agriculture Article 1 and Article 2 or Brownfields Article 1 and Article 2). Look at images and begin to image a story. What will your thesis be? What images best capture your ideas? What music sets the tone? How can you merge science, policy and the human dimension? Think about it in terms of increasing environmental literacy and justice in the urban environment.
More things to consider:
What are the Realities of urban agriculture or brownfield redevelopment?
Are there myths we need to be skeptical about? What are the promises? What are the limitations? Is there a primary function? Think about this in terms of human health and well-being and urban ecology
What are the educational opportunities?
2. Please also read the article “A Safe Operating Space” and post a comment on how some aspect of that paper might be incorporated into your teaching.
