So, I ran into a multispecies ethnographic artist the other evening, and after an enlightening conversation, I’m still not sure what that means. But the work looks cool.
Some local artists have teamed with artists from around the country and some visiting anthropologists from the Association of American Anthropologists and created Multispecies Salon 3: Swarm. This is how they describe themselves:
The swarm is a network with no center to dictate order. It involves a multitude of different creative agents. Collective intelligence emerges in the swarm through communication and cooperation. Swarming is the tactic, rather than the theme, of our proposed exhibit.
Tonight, in conjunction with the exhibit, is a lecture entitled: Hope for Frogs in an Era of Mass Extinction. Kawliga Studios. Free. 6:30-7:30 pm.
