The Museum of Contemporary Sediments

October 29, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Bluxome Center, 61 Bluxome Street
San Francisco, CA 94107 United States

Our environment is the result of billions of years of interaction between geological and biological forces. Early naturalists worked to observe and document this environment, resulting in the science we know today. What would our current environment look like to a naive naturalist? What will the sediments of our time look like to the naturalists of the future? Through an art installation and guided discussion, this event will be a reflection on these questions and what their answers might mean for us.
