Climate Change in custodia cover samsung note 8 VR as Told
From left to right: The Condor and The Eagle producer Bryan Parras cover iphone 6 rossa and directors Yudith Azareth and Clement Guerra. The film is an independent documentary about four Indigenous leaders who spoke at the Human/Progress Festival in Washington, DC in 2018.
Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun does not use email or custodia x samsung j7 2016 text. In the Coastal Salish communities from which he hails, he has been known as a painter and a dancer since the 1980s. Yet, he has been exploring the «virtual reality renaissance» the technology that allows you to figuratively step into a computer generated 3D world since it made its soft custodia iphone 6s cellular line debut in the ’90s.
In 2019, Yuxweluptun fell in with Paisley Smith, a filmmaker and virtual reality director who, like Yuxweluptun, comes from the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil Waututh First Nations, in what is today known as British Columbia.
Together, they created Unceded Territories, an immersive and provocative virtual reality experience that drops the viewer into a world immagini di cover samsung galaxy trend plus designed in Yuxweluptun’s style. Surrounded by his ’80s style visuals, you are then encouraged to design the world as you want by throwing oil paint onto the screen with abandon. Only once you’ve reached the end of the virtual adventure do you realize the running oil has left a trail of destruction in its wake, and that there is no turning back from this changed environment.
By combining Smith’s virtual reality filmmaking with the ’80s style visuals of Yuxweluptun’s custodia cover iphone x xs paintings, Unceded Territories explores the intersection of environmentalism and Indigenous rights. It is just one example of the many ways Indigenous artists across the Americas are engaging technology and other works to draw attention to their culture and the environmental challenges confronting their communities, ebay cover samsung trend plus which are on the front line of climate change.
«How do I teach people to love the land» asks Yuxweluptun, whose paintings tell stories about Indigenous human rights and climate change. «You flip cover samsung galaxy core prime can’t use my story and blame me for that. You can’t blame me for global warming.»
In the past, establishments outside of Indigenous communities rarely took note. Now, with social media, awareness is no longer limited to those cover fendi iphone 6 directly affected, he says.
Virtual reality, Yuxweluptun says, is another medium for someone like him to express his ideas in more ways than just on a one dimensional canvas. «Not everybody can do it, because you have to be able to think in a certain way,» he says. «It’s a different way, cover samsung a3 2017 joker other than painting or making a sculpture.»
Here are the stories of four other groups of Indigenous artists using technology and art to tell their communities’ stories.
The Condor and The EagleBryan Parras has been working in radio in the Houston market since the early 2000s and, as time passed, saw how social media made storytelling more accessible to everyone including those in marginalized communities.
In 2014, Parras met a European couple, cover samsung a20e spigen Sophie and Clment Guerra, who had come to the United States to support the climate movement and who quickly became entangled in the Indigenous movement as well. Eventually, they began work on The Condor and The Eagle, an independent documentary about four Indigenous leaders on a transcontinental adventure. «It’s another form of extraction, right Cultural extraction,» he says.
It’s custodia iphone 6 nike why Parras, was the documentary’s campaign producer, acted custodia cover huawei p30 lite as a bridge between the filmmakers and his community, so that Indigenous communities portrayed in the film would be included in the editing process as well. «What may not be written in the history books are now archived in this story,» he said.
Since its premiere at the samsung s6 hoesje Woodstock Film Festival in October 2019, The Condor and the Eagle has been selected by more than 50 film festivals and won 12 awards. The most notable one is Best Environmental Documentary at the 2019 Red Nation International Film Festival in Beverly Hills, California.
Wenazi K’egoke; See VisionsCasey Koyczan is Tlicho Dene from the Northwest Territories of Canada. When he collaborates on virtual reality exhibits, he brings what he calls a «Northern aesthetic» visuals of the remote landscape of the Northwest Territories of Canada. His latest project is Wenazi K’egoke; See Visions, a three chapter virtual reality experience that amazon cover samsung s4mini takes you into a dreamlike interpretation of encounters with animal spirits of the North.
See Visions uses stark colors to evoke the feeling of walking through the snow under an aurora borealis. Koyczan considers the animals depicted in this atmosphere heavy video to be its most important features. «It’s all about being involved in the North,» he says. «It reinforces the subtle notion that we are on their territory.»
See Visions debuted in a prototype version in 2019 at the annual ImagineNATIVE Film and Media Arts Festival in Toronto, a custodia pelle apple iphone 6s global hub for custodia samsung galaxy j 7 Indigenous made media art. Koyczan and his partner on the project, Travis Mercredi, are now developing it for length and interactivity.
It’s the kind of work ImagineNATIVE envisioned when it began featuring virtual reality projects in 2017, with the idea of depicting the world for Indigenous communities 150 years into the future. The idea, Koyczan says, is that although their current reality is not ideal, Indigenous communities will survive. «Thriving in this society hasn’t been laid out yet,» Koyczan said. «It’s really cool to depict these things. How things could be.»
Although he studied fine arts in college, Koyczan decided he preferred shaping things with his hands. He often builds installations that allow him to project each of his projects from custodia samsung s6 yokata his laptop creating a physical aspect for further immersion. He also creates the music for his projects, playing several instruments in a style he calls «electro rock.»
About his and Mercredi’s work, Koyczan says, «We feel it’s providing accessibility and insight into a portion of our landscape and aesthetic as new media artists.»
Three SistersIn 2019, the Dundas West Art Museum in Toronto hosted an art exchange that allowed one Canadian artist to travel to Chile to paint a mural, while Chilean artist, Paula Tikay, went to paint in Canada.
«At the end of [painting] a mural, one leaves and leaves [their] work for the people who transit those places,» says Tikay, who is Mapuche, the largest custodia cover huawei y5 2018 Indigenous group in Chile. «They are like small messages that can identify and rescue stories from places. They are like gifts that appear for the inhabitants of that space.»
Dundas West Art Museum is Toronto’s first open air street art museum. The neighborhood of Dundas West has long been connected with Chile since Chileans began moving there as refugees of Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship in the 1970s.
Tikay’s contribution to the museum is a Three Sisters mural, depicting three Indigenous women who represent the three main agricultural crops of Indigenous groups in the Americas.
Three Sisters is the clear cover samsung a8 name given to climbing beans, maize, and squash that are/were grown together in an agricultural strategy called companion planting. It’s a historical reminder that European settlers learned to plant crops on American soil from its Indigenous people.
Tikay calls it an honor to use her art to remind people of that, especially because it was also practiced in her ancestral southern Chile.
My Louisiana LoveThe Houma Nation sits on the Mississippi Delta; the wetlands there were struck by both Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the BP oil spill five years later. These disasters, both natural custodia lifeproof iphone 5 and manmade, slowly chip away at the way of life of the Houma people, making them less able to hunt, trap, and fish.
In 2015, Monique Verdin co produced the documentary, My Louisiana Love, which traces her journey back to her home in the Houma nation and focuses on her community’s struggle with decades of environmental degradation…
