Spiritual revival of unsterilized interspecies collaborations. Ritualistic healing of Industrial Amnesia. Ecstatic dwelling in decomposition and decay. You will read and discuss ancient practices of fermentation, followed by the creation of edible bio-art in the kitchen that will take two weeks for microbes to cook for you.
 
Bios: Leila Nadir and Cary Adams have been working together for over two decades as multi-species kin-makers, creative-critical researchers, undisciplined storytellers, eccentric educators, and healers of industrial amnesia. Their mediums are poetic visibility, feeling-perception, and the simple acts of everyday life in an effort to regenerate and repair disturbed ecologies. Their work has been supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Center for Land Use Interpretation, New York Foundation for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, K2 Family Foundation, and Franklin Furnace Fund. They teach at the University of Rochester in upstate New York, where Nadir is Assistant Professor and Founding Director of the Environmental Humanities Program and Adams is Associate Professor of New Media and Emerging Practices.
