Lexicon of Sustainability 

When: Feb. 6-May 7 2014
Can we meet our country's growing agricultural demands in a way that honors our earth? The David Brower Center explores the language of resilience in our winter 2014 exhibit, a multi-platform project featuring the work of Douglas Gayeton that uses photography, film, ethnography, and crowdsourcing techniques to uncover the terms and principles that characterize “sustainability,” a popular term with a sometimes slippery definition. At a time when our country’s commercial agriculture operation is causing major environmental degradation by polluting our waterways, contributing to deforestation, or poisoning wildlife with pesticides, a sustainable sea change in the industry is called for. This important exhibit sheds light on changemakers across the country who are reshaping our food culture and working to develop a healthier, safer, and more sustainable system nationwide.

Douglas Gayeton is a filmmaker, photographer and writer. Since the early 90s, he has created award-winning work at the boundaries of traditional and converging media for AOL, MSN, MTV, Napster, Electronic Arts, Vivendi, Ubisoft, National Geographic and PBS. His most recent documentary aired on HBO. He is the author of “Slow: Life in a Tuscan Town," published by Welcome Books. The award-winning book features a preface by the founder of Slow Food, Carlo Petrini. Douglas lectures frequently on art, technology and sustainability. His photographs have been printed in Time and other magazines and are held in numerous museum and private collections around the world.

Together with Laura Howard-Gayeton, Douglas founded "The Lexicon of Sustainability", a multi-platform project based on a simple premise: people can’t be expected to live more sustainable lives if they don’t know the most basic terms and principles that define sustainability.
