Lila Lee-Morrison’s book Machinic Landscapes: Technology, Art, and Environment in an Age of Planetarity will address contemporary artists who produce imaginary conceptions of landscape by recontextualizing images of the planet made by digital imaging systems. Running counter to scientific and military contexts of technological development, these artists’ practices address the figuring of diverse subjectivities as enmeshed in both technical and environmental processes.                                   

Lila Lee-Morrison is a writer, scholar, and art historian whose research focuses on the visual culture of machine vision and sociopolitical agencies of the image. Her writing has appeared in Artforum, Media+Environment Journal, and several essay collections.
