Restoring Rivers by Restoring Flooding

Restoring Rivers by Restoring Flooding | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

The Army Corps of Engineers is making floods. As part of a decade-long partnership called the Sustainable Rivers Project, the Corps and The Nature Conservancy are collaborating in eight river basins across the U.S. to modify dam operations for the benefit of downstream river and estuary health. In five of those basins – the Savannah River in Georgia and South Carolina, the Green River of Kentucky, the Bill Williams River of Arizona, the Big Cypress Bayou of Texas, and the Willamette River in Oregon – the Corps is releasing ‘designer floods’ from their dams.

Re-post: Zander Olsen. ‘This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest. These works, carried out in Surrey, Hampshire and Wales,involve site specific interventions in the landscape, ‘wrapping’ trees with white material to construct a visual relationship between tree, not-tree and the line of horizon according to the camera’s viewpoint.’

What can Goethe teach people in business? Otto Scharmer interviews Thomas Johnson

What can Goethe teach people in business? Otto Scharmer interviews Thomas Johnson | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

Otto Scharmer: Tom Johnson’s recent work is organized around the following underlying question: How would we think differently about an organization if we viewed it as a living system rather than as a machine.? Living systems evolve according to the same universal principles that have guided the evolution of the cosmos over the past 15 billion years. The evolution of the cosmos embodies three fundamental principles: self-organization, interdependence, diversity. This change implies a fundamental shift of mind. A shift of mind from a mechanistic, “Newtonian” type of thinking to another perspective that conceives of reality as a living system. Following Bortoft, Goethe, and Bohm, Johnson suggests that the whole is manifested in (and between) the parts. Says Johnson: “I think one of the biggest changes is for managers to start to see the whole mirrored in the parts.”

Written by Tim Waterman, Writtle School of Design.

 

The ability to dominate and bend the planet to our creative or destructive will has guided our collective action in the landscape in recent centuries, but a richer idea of the landscape and our engagement with it may yet save us.

 

“What agency does landscape possess, as a means of territorial organisation and creative production, to engage critically with the conditions that define the collective aspects of our environment?”

Integrating Whitehead: Towards an Environmental Ethic

Integrating Whitehead: Towards an Environmental Ethic | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

Creativity! That is the cosmic interval between matter and form. Creativity is the Ultimate Ground out of which matter emerges into form. This mysterious process of emergence is the driving force behind the Kosmos. Somehow, matter (and I will argue consciousness) is destined to organize itself into more and more complex forms. Emergence! Emergence is not a how. It is a what. Emergence only describes what happens; it cannot account for how new forms come into being. Nevertheless, to come into the clearing and find even this insight: stuff emerges--and to scream from your heart "EMERGENCE!," as Whitehead did--is to incite riot. It is to climb upon the roof of scientific materialism and shout to the people below that which they have longed for centuries to hear. Upon hearing this message, there is a stirring, a ruffling of being, an allurement to a deeper perspective, an uncovering of something forbidden and dangerous.

What could be more anti-establishment than to pronounce "creativity" as the very fabric of the universe? Whitehead as revolutionary! A rebel--taking a stand against a tradition much larger than himself. Equipped only with looking deeply into his experience and reporting as accurately as he could with the tools he had, that which he found there, Whitehead waved the banner of emergence and articulated his "philosophy of organism." Whitehead was asking for a new age, a new way of conceiving the interval between matter and form, a new way of perceiving of our relationship in the cosmos. Let us climb upon the roof with him and usher in this revolution of being-in-the-world.
