I’ve seen sea breams, glittering in the dark off the Tannhäuser gate.

It was a pleasure to be a part of the keynote panel at the conference. I got to share my work with an engaged and insightful audience, and I learned so much from the panels.

@inquiline Thanks for having me at the conference. I'm sorry we didn't get to meet...maybe next time!

FWIW...you may have seen me unmasked at the keynote. For all the smaller venues I was constantly masked.

These tiny plants sprout in the space between my car's windows and the rubber gaskets that keep water from leaking into the car door via the window. These spaces appear to accumulate dust and dirt, and this is enough to allow moss and other things to grow. I very rarely drive my car (today was the first time since July). Any idea what kind of plant this is?

Following up yesterday's post...the Montreal Petrofuture, reverse side.
.

The Petrofuture series reimagines our memories, altering the tropes of nostalgia. These maps take on the promotions of petro-corporations, turn them around, depicting the ultimate consequences of car culture and the burning of fossil fuels.

Why do birds
Suddenly appear
Every time
You are near?
Just like me
You’re secretly
Made of bread

@Chrishallbeck
If I were a carpenter I'd hammer on my big nail
I'd collect the seven dollars
And I'd buy a big enormous bird
And have it follow you around

Retrofuture map of New York City

A vintage 1894 USGS map with 218’ of sea level rise—if all the world’s ice caps melted. I’ve also added modern hillshade to accentuate the hills and valleys.
