Voices is our public outreach format. In collecting short statements and responses from all society, we want to include otherwise unheard voices and foster a broader dialogue on the ecological imperative. We also want to relate our own conception to perspectives from outside academia. The format of Voices relies on Hito Steyerl's concept the poor image, which emphasizes the potential of easily accessible, low resolution footage brought to common use.
