Forest Talk Radio: Under Your Favourite Tree

Event details

05 - 30 Sep, 2020
FREE

Forest Talk Radio: Old Growth (Temagami ON CA) is a walking adventure where you have awoken to a world where your fellow humans act like brainless automatons all thanks to a virus that has leapt over the organic/silicon divide–a digital virus created by trees, and uploaded to the info-grid through cell-phone-hacking fungi, that allows humans to feel what a tree feels when it is being cut down.

I realize travelling to a remote Northern Ontario town is unfeasible for most;) so I am reworking this soundwalk to be available to everyone, from where ever you are–simply go to your favourite park, find your favourite tree and go to http://www.foresttalkradio.ca and click the ONLINE VERSION button of Old Growth Temagami, or use this link right here to go directly to the soundwalk: https://cgeomap.eu/whitebearforest/
