We are in the process of organizing this symposium in conjunction with our film in process, Playing with Fire. The symposium will be filmed as one of the scenes in the film itself. The EARTH Lab SF will bring together artists, scientists, academics, community members and other interested parties to talk about all aspects of fire, from its destructive abilities to its life giving properties. STAY TUNED.

Seedbed posterSeedbed: A Soil Symposium

This multimedia symposium took place from April 26-27, 2018 at the UCSC Fram & Garden. In collaboration with the Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems (CAVS), the E.A.R.T.H. Lab hosted this interdisciplinary event. It featured visual artwork installed throughout campus, performances, interactive activities and meals. Panels were held in the Cowell Ranch Hay Barn exploring a diverse range of topics from microbes to waste management, labor and farming; the magic composting and soil science. Seedbed explored how climate change and human industry have endangered our topsoils – rendering it deadly- as well as the amazing life sustaining potential of what we call “dirt.”

Join us for a multi-disciplinary gathering to explore our relationships with the environment and social justice, engage in human/non-human collaboration, critique ideologies and debate new sexualities. What happens when we see the Earth as our lover? Let’s examine where our “bodies” end and “nature” begins.
