How would the city look to a naturalist or activist who did not discriminate between alien and native (species)? In light of the move away from the ideology of invasive species in contemporary science, is there an alternative way to look at how we and other creatures circulate and find comfort? Creative consulting and design collaborative spurse will lead a study walk through the Lower East Side together with New School's Professor of Anthropology Hugh Raffles during which they will introduce a new classification system for naturalists and immigration-rights activists alike.
