Planéte Sauvage: Moving away from Human-centred work, beyond Anthropocene.

Hey there!
During DesignTO January 18-27, 2019 I will be exhibiting research and designs at co:Lab 906 Queen Street West for Planéte Sauvage: Moving away from Human-centred work, beyond Anthropocene. ‘La Planete Sauvage’ takes place in a speculative future construct where non-human-centered design flourishes. During the opening reception, Thursday, January 17th I will be holding a special intro/demo workshop.

Special: Sculpting with Mycelium & Intro to MIDI Bio-sonification: non-human collaboration (mycelium to midi and beyond!)  Thursday, January 17th 7:30pm start, $25/pp  Reserve your seat soon- space is limited!

Collaborate sonically with the non-human organisms around you.

This special workshop introduces people to the concept of thinking with, living with, and being with other planetary organisms in a world that does not forget how much ecological trouble it is in.[1]

Taking place during the opening reception of Planéte Sauvage: Moving away from Human-centred work, beyond Anthropocene.  ‘La Planete Sauvage’ takes place in a speculative future construct where non-human-centered art & design flourishes.

Registrants receive a sculpted form/bowl and a 5-10 minute* recording of their bio-data translated to MIDI. Workshop introduction begins at 7:30pm, Bio-Sonification recordings start at 8pm. Registrants receive a specified time slot between 8pm-9:15pm. Recordings will go live Saturday, January 19th in the Midnight Mushroom Music Podcast.

  1. Hi, I missed your workshop last night. It appears that you are doing other ones as well (on Feb. 23 and 24, and another one sometime in January?) I’m having trouble figuring out the schedule. I’m interested in the mycelium related activities. And for the sonic work, do I need to have a smart phone (apps). or will a laptop be able to store those sounds created?

    Thanks very much! Jill

    1. Workshops are scheduled for Feb 23/24. You do not require a smartphone, or iPad/notebook. Laptops work, mentioned in the description is working with a laptop and Ableton Live, but you can work with any music software/gear that accepts MIDI in.
