Emma Davie / Peter Mettler

“We are human only in contact, and conviviality, with what is not human,” says influential American environmental philosopher David Abram. Emma Davie and Peter Mettler visit Grand Teton Park together with him and explore how technology and the written word have influenced the way we see things. This audio-visual journey shows how we perceive a more-than-human-world and, conversely, how it perceives us. It teases our senses in observing the ‘natural world’ – which, in turn, observes us.
