520 |a "African Ecomedia positions Africa at the center of discourses on media ecologies, materiality, and infrastructure in media studies. Africa is the place where media technologies derive essential components and the place in which they often end up as obsolete matter. Examining film, photography, video art, sculpture, and 3D architectural rendering, Cajetan Iheka argues that African representational arts provide the appropriate site for understanding the ecological footprint of media, and they offer examples of the infinite resourcefulness crucial for an era of finite resources. Working with a method termed "insightful reading," African Ecomedia reorients the fields of African studies, media studies, energy humanities, and the environmental humanities. The decolonial impulse animating the book foregrounds Africa as site of novel epistemological possibilities and sustainable innovations in a time of planetary crisis"--  |c Provided by publisher.
