The Death of Nature
Ecofeminist – Philosopher, Carolyn Merchant reminds us, pre_Enlightenment, Nature was viewed as the benevolent mother of all things. It was the ‘dominion model of Scientific Revolution that placed this perspective, rationalizing and dissecting Nature to reveal her secrets. In having such secrets exposed, Nature became more vulnerable and hence easier to control. She speaks of this in her book, The Death of Nature. I have taken the liberty here to interpret this with a collaged digital image.
