dc.description.abstractInformation is complex, multi-dimensional, interdisciplinary, and systemic. Language systems can be perceptually fragmented, negatively impacting environmental performance within critical resource management systems including waste management. Linguistic systems impact cognitive, material, and communicative functions collectively within any phenomenon. The semiosphere unifies diverse, and dynamic dimensions of information, where space, time, Mind, Matter, and Media form intra-connected systems and patterns. This study builds a unifying model and linguistic research method for studying information dynamics within an ecological-material framework. It exposes core functions of language within a solid waste and recycling lifecycle case study. In analyzing video segments and interviews, I found deep structures within a semiosphere that appear fragmented, yet are actually fractal in nature within a cohesive space, and where cognitive, material, and mediated forms fade and flow. I propose an Information Architecture that models complex linguistic environmental systems for enhanced ecological literacy and ecological performance.en_US
