Conversations About Landscape: Observing Landscapes - Mirrors of Time - Livestream

treehouse

While the coronavirus pandemic has kept many of us sequestered from one another, it has also allowed us time to experience our cities in a new way. A slower pace for many has opened up space to sit with and observe our immediate surroundings and our natural environment. To celebrate the local landscape, this series offers perspectives on history and place and how we both shape and are shaped by our natural environments. We will be talking with scientists, artists, poets, and environmental activists to celebrate the Bay Area and our ongoing resilience planning, as we begin a new era of reflection and reorientation toward strengthening Bay Area communities.

Mirrors of Time

History, politics, nature, and culture shape our sense of our landscape. Who we are, where we come from, and how we see our futures all connect back to our sense of place. 

Please join poet Tess Taylor and photographer Lewis Watts in considering ways our contemporary landscape holds traces of the past and glimmers of the future. Through a poem or a lens, Tess and Lewis offer perspectives on the complexities of cultural and ecological change. Taylor will read excerpts from her two new books, Last West, Roadsongs For Dorothea Lange and Rift Zone. Watts will present images from his 30 years of observations of African American life and transformation in California.
