Join artist John Riggs and UW scholar Monika Shea as they discuss clearcutting as a metaphor for the tensions that exist in how humans perceive and interact with the natural world, and more broadly how clearcutting can be seen as a useful metaphor for our current climate crisis. The discussion will include an overview of the history and ecology of clearcutting in the Pacific Northwest and Wisconsin. Co-presented with the Nelson Institute.
