U-n-f-o-l-d: What Insects Tell Us: A Conversation between David Dunn and Hugh Raffles

6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

This event "U-n-f-o-l-d: What Insects Tell Us" is a conversation between David Dunn and Hugh Raffles.

David Dunn is a composer whose current work is focused upon the development of listening strategies and technologies for environmental sound monitoring in both aesthetic and scientific contexts. Dunn is internationally known for his articulation of frameworks that combine the arts and sciences towards practical environmental activism and problem-solving.

Hugh Raffles is a professor of anthropology at The New School. He is the author most recently of Insectopedia (Vintage), which was a New York Times Notable Book for 2010 and the winner of the Orion Book Prize, a Special Prize for Extending Ethnographic Understanding from the Society for Humanistic Anthropology, and a 2009 Whiting Writers’ Award.

This program is in conjunction with the exhibition U-n-f-o-l-d: A Cultural Response to Climate Change.
