Plant Talk Human Talk: An EPA Training for the Beginning of the World

May 13, 2018
12:30  -  2:00
Lab 1, New York Hall of Science (NYSCI)

Plant Talk Human Talk explores the biocultural possibility of spontaneous urban plants (aka weeds) as collaborators and guides in imagining new urban systems/ecologies. The Queens Museum’s surrounding landscape serves as a site for applied fieldwork where participants will engage in EPA’s embodied scientist training for cultivating plant-human relations and interspecies alliances. Tactics include wild plant unmapping, radical care sitting, and creating embodied scores for a world beyond human.
Limited to 30 participants.
