Live Feeds Feedback Session 7: Mapping Movements and Power by spurse

Wednesday, September 14, 2011, 3:30–5:30 pm


Migrating birds

Isn’t it odd that the terms we use to classify New York’s newly migrated populations are so similar in their connotation? Take humans and plants, for instance: human migrants might be “illegal aliens,” and plant migrants “invasive species.” How we understand systems of migration leads to how we understand circulations of power. Is there a model of thinking about our city’s populace that imagines that everything has moved, and will continue to move? Creative consulting and design collaborative spurse will dedicate this session to alternative understandings of migrations and immigrations.
