    Ekos: The Path to Resilience

    Thursday, February 9

    United States: 10am PDT, 11am MDT, 12pm CDT, 1pm EDT

    Europe: 18:00 GMT/WET


    Christopher Kennedy

    Ekos: The Path to Resilience is a multiplayer board game that challenges a group of six community members to come together and envision a more equitable and sustainable City of Ekos in the face of climate change and other challenges. During the game of Ekos, players alternate between building social, ecological and technological systems (SETS) and responding to a range of events from flash flooding and extreme heat, to the expansion of mass transit or nature-based solutions. Working cooperatively as one of 6 players — a City Council Speaker, Community Organizer, City Planner, Ecologist, Designer, and Modeler — your goal is to build a network of resilient systems, use resources wisely, and collaborate with the other community members to improve the adaptive capacity of your systems against extreme events. Ekos was developed with the goal of creating a playful platform for individuals and communities to discuss and learn about issues of urban resilience, climate governance, and community-based codesign.

    During this event, you will hear from one of the game’s developers Christopher Kennedy who is the Associate Director of the Urban Systems Lab at The New School. Learn more about how Ekos was conceived, how the game addresses critical sustainability issues, and our plans to create a digital mobile friendly version of the game.  We’ll explore questions that inspired our design process such as: “What does it mean for a city to be resilient but not equitable?” or “How do we design a game about complexity that is actually simple and fun to play?!”

    From Artist to Entrepreneur

    Thursday, February 16

    United States: 10am PDT, 11am MDT, 12pm CDT, 1pm EDT

    Europe: 18:00 GMT/WET


    Philip Ross

    In this Zoom we will hear from artist Philip Ross about his work with mycelium and how this path evolved from artist to eco-entrepreneur.

    MycoWorks was co-founded by San Francisco artist Philip Ross, who has worked at the intersection of art, design and biotechnology for over three decades. Phil began cultivating mycelium as a material for art and design in the 1990s, inspired by the beauty and life cycles of mushrooms. A skilled chef and naturalist, his field work in mycology began in the woods of upstate New York, where he first learned to forage for wild mushrooms. His subsequent work as a hospice caregiver during the HIV crisis in San Francisco introduced him to the immune-supporting benefits of reishi mushrooms, which he began growing for medicinal use. He discovered a rich diversity in form, texture and color—expressions of reishi’s dynamic response to the everyday forces of light, air, gravity and temperature. Phil soon began working with reishi as a material for creating sculptures, bringing culinary precision and a naturalist’s keen eye to perfect his “biotechniques” for growing living works of art.



    Presenter


    Philip Ross pioneered materials research which launched the field of mycotecture, a term he coined in 2008 to describe the art of designing and building with mycelium. His mycelium artworks and installations have been exhibited internationally at MoMA, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf and The Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, and his patents and publications are foundational to the field of mycelium material science. When worldwide interest in Phil’s material inventions brought opportunities to partner with brands seeking innovative, sustainable materials, Phil invited his long-time artistic collaborator, Sophia Wang, to start a company. mycoworks.com

    SOUND Dialogues

    Tuesday, February 21

    United States: 12pm PST, 1pm MST, 2pm CST, 3pm EST

    EUROPE: 21:00 GMT  Australia: 7am Thursday AEDT

    There are currently several members who have identified sound as one of their mediums in their art practice. Canadian eco sound artist Claude Schryer has proposed a series of 4 meetings (January to April) to exchange about issues raised in the 4th season of his conscient podcast :  'Sounding Modernity - weekly 5 minute sound meditations’ which will take place in 2023. Together we will explore what modernity sounds like and how we can respond to it. Each Sound Dialogues session will begin by listening to one 5 minute conscient podcast episode followed by a discussion about the issues raised in the episode and an opportunity for participants to contribute sound works to the dialogue. To learn more about Sounding Modernity go to YouTube or simplecast, or read the Sounding Modernity blog.


    Claude Schryer (1959, Ottawa, he/him) believes the arts, in the context of decolonization, can play a much more impactful role in shaping our collective future and has dedicated the rest of his life to this vocation. He is a franco-ontarian sound and media artist and arts administrator of european ancestry. He holds a MM in composition from McGill University and was actively in involved in the acoustic ecology and electroacoustic music communities in the 80’s & 90’s in Montréal, Banff and across Europe. From 00 to 20 he held management positions at Canada Council for the Arts in Inter-Arts, partnerships and as a senior strategic advisor. He currents produces the conscient podcast on art and the ecological crisis (season 4, ‘Sounding Modernity’, begins 1 January 2023). He describes his artistic aesthetic as ‘an exploration of the liminal space between reality, fantasy and spirit’. He is also an environmental activist who volunteers with the Sectoral Climate Art Leadership for the Emergency (SCALE)(currently chair of the board and member of the Mission Circle) and regularly gives workshops, facilitates meetings, and participates in panels and presentations on art and sound and the ecological crisis. He is grateful to the Gesturing Towards Decolonized Futures collective and the Facing Human Wrongs course for guidance in his learning and unlearnings. He is a daily qi gong practionner, swimmer, e-biker, son of artist Jeannine and pathologist Maurice Schryer, husband of artist Sabrina Mathews, father of earth science student Clara Schryer and history student Riel Schryer.  claudeschryer.ca
