the NETWORK project is inspired by ecological systems of communication, resource-sharing and survival employed in tree communities, to develop tools for resilient community building. Considering the ongoing climate crisis, how can all beings—trees, land, and animals including humans–survive and thrive together?
Through site-specific experiential performances, workshops, think tanks, and research excursions we are learning together about the commonality of all nature’s sensory systems. We somatically discover our shared intelligence and how the fascial systems of animal bodies are an extension of the global mycelial networks.
Together we are devising research methods and creative models of resilient living based on horizontal exchange, trust and transforming our individualistic ways of living.
Produced by MovingGround, the NETWORK project experiences are co-created and performed by a unique team of performers, scientists, and designers per locale. the NETWORK project has existed in many phases of research and development since 2017 and will continue developing models that serve nature and all beings in both urban and rural communities. Most recently we premiered a three hour experience at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program,
