FALL AND WINTER - FREE FILM SCREENING AT COOPER UNION

design squish blog

This stunning film takes you on a hypnotic journey, reaching to the past to understand the origins of the catastrophic environmental transitions we now face. Over two years, director Matt Anderson traveled 16,000 miles to document firsthand our modern industrial world and the environmental destruction in its wake. In the process, he discovered exciting strategies to help humanity transcend the coming ecological and psychological crisis.

Some of today’s most progressive thinkers, from anthropologists and bio-architects to psychologists and journalists, collectively recreate a story of humanity and the history of Earth, illuminating a desperately needed new path for us to take. Fall and Winter is a survival guide for the 21st Century.


A Film Screening and Q&A with the director, Matt Anderson

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2013, 7:00PM - 10:00PM,  at Cooper Union - 41 Cooper Square

CICADA SEASON

cicada season, upstate new york, design squish blog

Seventeen year cicadas are here in New York! Magicicada spp. spend most of their 17-year lives underground feeding on xylem fluids from the roots of deciduous forest trees in the eastern United States.  After 17 years, mature cicada nymphs emerge at any given locality, synchronously and in tremendous numbers. After such a prolonged developmental phase, the adults are active for about 4 to 6 weeks. The males aggregate into chorus centers and attract mates. Within two months of the original emergence, the life cycle is complete, the eggs have been laid and the adult cicadas are gone for another 17 years.
