Deirdre Fraser-Gudrunas / Vibrant Matter: Parallel Field Guide

Artist-forager Deirdre Fraser-Gudrunas led an outdoor walk/workshop to discover plants and fungi in the Highland Creek Ravine. Participants were asked to make notes and observations as they learned and talked about the species they encountered. Discussion about the plants encountered considered history and natural history as well as philosophy, with a focus on trespassing, conservation and ideas of “invasive” species and migrant plants in the context of climate change.  Returning to the gallery, they were invited to relate what they had just experienced as a page in a “field guide” to be published following the exhibition.
