This internet based communication tool for discussing environmental affairs acknowledges by its structure the "importance of participation in any meaningful solutions that can be imagined". It offers viewers a variety of ways to retrieve and redistribute conversations from the archive in the form of straight transcripts or a visual replay (with speed control) of the chat through the interface. Viewers can speed-read for an overview of the discussion or take their time and follow up links. Eco-scope was featured in Ecomedia, a touring show exploring 'Ecological Strategies in Today's Art'.
