Abstract
The contributed chapter The Earth is an Art, Like Everything Else takes the the poem Lady Lazarus by Sylvia Plath and the related essay by Michael Taussig as a starting point for developing the ways in which digital art, media and creative practices might 'reattach' us to the earth. Fujihata's Masaki (literally) groundbreaking 1992 project, "Impressing Velocity (Mount Fuji)", in which the artist packed a rucksack with what then a rather large and heavy kit-of-parts — a serial GPS module, a laptop computer and a (then, not-commercially-available) head-mounted video camera — and climbed up the side of Mount Fuji, serves to example knowledge practices in the future in art, science, research and experience, that might ground and attach us more intimately to the planet and its processes.
