This essay explores the emergency posed by global biocultural diversity loss and the emergence of a new form of electronic monumentality, theorized by Gregory Ulmer in Electronic Monuments, and used here to address the biocultural diversity crisis. Like Ulmer, who created an agency - the EmerAgency - to produce electronic monuments, I have done the same.
