Description

How we can improve our perception of the complexity we live within, so we may improve our interaction with the world?

Join special guest Nora Bateson, and Dennis P. O’Hara, Director ot the Elliott Allen Institute for Theology & Ecology, for the screening of An Ecology of Mind. A Daughter’s Portrait of Gregory Bateson (2010, 60 min.) followed by a panel discussion. Greetings from Sarah Sharma, Director of the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology. Refreshments will be provided.

An Ecology of Mind is a film portrait of Gregory Bateson, celebrated anthropologist, philosopher, author, naturalist, systems theorist, and filmmaker, produced and directed by his daughter, Nora Bateson. The film includes footage from Bateson’s own films shot in the 1930s in Bali (with Margaret Mead) and New Guinea, along with photographs, filmed lectures, and interviews. His youngest child, Nora, depicts him as a man who studied the interrelationships of the complex systems in which we live with a depth motivated by scientific rigor and caring integrity.

NORA BATESON is an award-winning filmmaker, writer and educator, as well as President of the International Bateson Institute, based in Sweden. An international lecturer, researcher and writer, Nora wrote, directed and produced the award-winning documentary, An Ecology of Mind, a portrait of her father, Gregory Bateson. Her work brings the fields of biology, cognition, art, anthropology, psychology, and information technology together into a study of the patterns in ecology of living systems. Her book, Small Arcs of Larger Circles (Triarchy Press, UK, 2016) is a revolutionary personal approach to the study of systems and complexity.
