AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Publisher's blurb: A multimedia investigation of landscape and language, rumour and fact. The project asks questions about the nature of intervention: ecologically - whether the virus was 'created' by humans - and artistically - about the intrusive nature of the camera, the microphone, the notebook. A soundscape CD is included with the book.
