I have long been interested in the relationship between the natural and the virtual. In recent years, the Kid’s Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary has removed words relating to nature and replaced them with technology-related terms, deeming these to be more ‘relevant .’ What does this mean as we increasingly split our time between online and outside? What happens when a natural and virtual landscape share the same vocabulary, such as with “Amazon" "web" "spider" "stream" etc. The internet and the natural world are not equivalent; each has a distinct affect and offers a distinct experience, but our identities are influenced by both.
