The wild is here, right here.
Artificial Wilderness is a book about the act of listening. Do you listen? Do you really? Have you ever let the sounds around you - the nonhuman sounds; the unwanted sounds - interrupt your private telenova?
Referencing the work of sound artists dave phillips, Cathy Lane, Chris DeLaurenti and more, Mandy-
Suzanne Wong implores us to listen. With illustrations from multidisciplinary artist and eco-feminist
activist Kathryn Eddy, Artificial Wilderness is the perfect interruption to daily life.
