The ECOtarot deck was created by ecoartspace member adriene jenik.
The deck's standard archetypes and interpretations are from the original tarot, updated to reflect contemporary actors, values and symbols from our climate drama.
Originally created to support artist and ASU professor Adriene Jenik's public "climate future readings," the ECOtarot deck is now available for individual purchase.
The ECOtarot deck's beauty and power is derived from the use of handmade, plant-based paper, natural pigments and symbols. This reproduction is faithful to the original cards.
Interpretations of the cards are drawn from
Scientific knowledge and modelling (drawn from IPCC reports and vetted by climate scientists)
Philosophical texts that argue for new values necessary to support our continued life on this planet (cooperativeness, simplicity, temperance, mindfulness, respect for nature)
Activities of ecological heroines throughout the ages
Knowledge of the meanings of the tarot as passed down through languages and centuries.
We are offering the deck to ecoartspace members for $35. If you are not a member and would like to buy a deck directly from the artist, she is selling them for $40 on her webpage here: https://theconnectcenter.asu.edu/ecotarot-deck
