Pulvis et umbra sumus. We are but dust and shadow. –Horace
Dust and shadow is FoAM's contribution to a transdisciplinary research and residency programme at the ASU (Arizona State University), exploring environmental issues specific to the desert of the North-American Southwest. We combine philosophical inquiry with speculative design and action research to explore divergent approaches to desertification (both ecological and cultural), zombie-utopias, panpsychism, beyond-human relationships and probabilistic future preparedness.
