- Media Ecology refers to an interdisciplinary field of media theory and media design. It involves the study of media as environments and anti-environments.
- If a new medium places stress on the environment, Media Ecology seeks to restore a sensory balance.
- Example: On the internet, our identities merge. We have no privacy. One area of potential reconnection is generational identity.
- The challenge is to restore dialog between generations where only monologs now exist.
Like a neural circuit, all media contain these environmental effects in balance.
