Abstract

Proceeding from an assumption that electronic representations of the natural environment (both recorded and real time) not only can help give humanity a greater awareness of the complexity of the non-human world but also can contribute toward alleviating the problems posed by recreational overuse of the wilderness, the author argues for institutional encouragement of technologically sophisticated artists working toward this possibility. Current examples of artistic works are discussed within a philosophical context.
