This thesis analyzes the possible collaborations between anthropological knowledge generation processes and production of artworks in new media environments. The accompanying new media project titled ‘Imagining Mostly Harmless Ecologies’ attempts to create a cityscape and focuses on a collective garden to explore and present people’s possibly different ways relating with each other and their environments. Through collecting critical visions, practices and relations in the urban context, it aims to open a space for discussion and communication. New media project aims to contribute to and move further the discussions of the thesis with providing a network of critical visions. The main argument that I discuss is that the possibilities that new media environments propose, diversifies the anthropological knowledge generation and dissemination processes. Also, the collaboration of two disciplines contributes to the political and public features and responsibilities of the artwork by a more attentive and detailed background.
