Gardener’s Vision

“Without communication, connection, and empathy, it becomes easy for actors to take on the “gardener’s vision”: to treat those they are acting upon as less human or not human at all and to see the process of interacting with them as one of grooming, of control, of organization. This organization, far from being a laudable form of efficiency, is inseparable from dehumanization.”

—Os Keyes, “The Gardener’s Vision of Data.” Real Life. May 6, 2019.
