Art & Energy
How Culture Changes
In Art and Energy, Barry Lord contends that human imagination is profoundly connected to the assets accessible on Earth for our survival. From our old dominance of flame through our abuse of coal, oil, and gas, to the advancement of today’s renewable vitality sources, each new wellspring of vitality in a general sense changes our specialty and culture—how we cooperate with the world, arrange our groups, impart and think about and dole out an incentive to craftsmanship. By dissecting workmanship, craftsmen, and exhibition halls crosswise over times and landmasses, Lord shows how our social qualities and imaginative expression are framed by our endeavors to get to and control the vitality sources that make these societies conceivable.
