LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE
-a gathering for animals, people and minerals
hello!earth invites you to a social event, a guided tour, a sensory nature experience, an audio walk, a joined laboratory, a gathering, an excursion, a party.
With new biological knowledge about the intelligent systems of nature as a starting point “LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE“ deals with shifting paradigms of our relations to natural environments and possible roles for humans. It challenges our ideas of “nature” and “civilization”, and invites you to a sensory and poetic exploration of our possibilities to organize ourselves as a collective and as a society. In nature, with nature, as nature.
