Ourseeds, Ourselves

The seed is self-sufficient; containing the means of its own production. It functions on a lending structure. The seed is a resource with forgiving time constraints; it has patience and fortitude. It understands relevant value and has an anatomy built for travel, dispersal. A seed is the original collaborator, distributed with the help of animals, plants, insects, humans and all the other forces of nature… wind, water, rain; orchestrating its own activation through the elements. A seed knows just when to make itself vulnerable. We learned how to work together and for one another from the seed. Interdisciplinary artist Hannah Hirsekorn will discuss the importance of seed saving as a form of anticapitalist resistance, an exercise in our human right to biodiversity and a way of understanding ourselves within Nature.
