Biography

Climate change is here but there remains a gap between acceptance of scientific knowledge and actionable change. My hybrid dissertation offers a model for closing this gap. I am creating three ecoaesthetic games, playing them with various publics, and assessing their ability to affect environmental thought. Ecoaesthetic games leverage the power of play, as spaces entered into voluntarily, where people commit to proceed together towards something, as a ‘foot in the door’ for divisive topics.
