My Wayne Leys Lecture

This was a lecture on ethics and ecology at SIU last year. It is on hyperobjects, of course...

Thanks so much to Sarah Lewison, a very very powerful artist, for videoing this so nicely. And to Nick Smaligo: to these two I think I have a bond for life now. And David Farrell, photographer of strange dioramas.

The whole thing brings up very fond memories of a found-object kind of a day: a room with a cement mixer, pink fairy lights, a lectern made of a round piece of drywall and a brick. It was emotionally the warmest of the very warm (along with my De Paul appearance).
