TO ERODE OR NOT TO ERODE: THE OPPOSITE POLES OF ENVIRONMENTAL CULTURAL ENGAGEMENTS

ABSTRACT

The dynamic relationship between humanity and the pollution and erosion of the North and South Poles is increasingly reshaping, altering and challenging cultural assumptions. As the Poles are eroded, the cultural framework and symbolisms determined by a cultural landscape that is the reflection of a natural environment in distress are also increasingly eroding. Our erosion of the Poles results in the Poles eroding us in return, obliging humanity to alter and find new cultural solutions.
