Between Man and Nature – A Reading Club: The Triumph of Seeds by Thor Hanson

We would like to invite you for a small and informal gathering.  The aim is to meet, connect and discuss a specially selected text that brings together culture and nature. We are happy that the next reading of this sprouting initiative will be held at Zabriskie.

The text is selected by artist Eva-Fiore Kovacovsky and is a passage from Thor Hanson’s “The Triumph of Seeds”.

The book talks about the strategies plants use to pack their seedlings with the perfect lunch and how seeds “conquered the plant kingdom and shaped human history”. During the reading we will particularly focus on how seeds allow plants to travel through time.

We invite you to read a review via this link and here a quote as a teaser:

“Anyone who has blown the fluff from a dandelion is familiar with the idea of seeds dispersing through space. In a very real sense dormancy allows seeds to disperse through time. It gives plants a way to position their seeds in a particular moment, that point in the future when conditions will be just right for germination.”

Please rsvp via email to sina.ribak@gmail.com  and we will send a PDF of a selection from the book to those who would like to attend the reading.  We will discuss the text as well as read some passages together.

We invite you to discover some insights in the world of seeds and to join us with an open mind.
