Beyond the Human View: Experience the World Like Other Species, with Annie Novak

Wednesday, March 20 -- 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The lived perspective of human beings shapes our planet, from our landscapes to our soundscapes to the night sky—with major consequences for the rest of life on Earth. We rarely consider what might happen if we stepped outside of the human-specific way of engaging with the world. What would happen if all eight billion of us stopped to smell the roses like an aphid, or took an actual bird’s-eye view (spoiler: it’s nothing like a satellite image)? Join author and educator Annie Novak, as she helps us explore what it might be like to experience the world through the eyes, ears, photoreceptors, and other sense systems of non-human species.
