Eyes in the Sky, Birds in the Heart and Mind (Part I): A Counterforce Lab Lecture Series On Interspecies Friendships Drones Ar (Lecture)


Eyes in the Sky, Birds in the Heart and Mind (Part I) is Counterforce Lab’s new lecture series. It is centered on Counterforce’s flagship project: the Biophilia Treehouse, a public art living sculpture, site for community storytelling and an offering to birds.

Join our distinguished speakers in the arts, humanities and sciences to explore how drones, photogrammetry as well as AR can help us foster interspecies friendships, reveal overlaps and disjunctures between scientific and Indigenous knowledge, and let us marvel at avian life force.

We are starting next Monday, November 14 at 12pm!
