WASTELANDS

Vittoria DiPalma

Early Biblical Texts: Weston – Wilderness (primitive) – Wastland (despoiled proof of devine censure, place of salvation by transforming to a garden)

SWAMP – visceral disgust, science/technology, increase usefulness & mitigate contamination

MOUNTAIN – fear, repulsion, fascination, attraction – sublime

FOREST – moral disgust, gardening, redemption

FENS = Wetlands

We have the same reactions as our ancestors to wastelands.

Use visceral disgust –> Action

Moral –> Hold polluters accountable

Redemption –> Art *** Can sanction contempolation rather than engagement

Love grows from intimate knowledge.

Wastland does not inspire love.
