Together we track shifts in social weather systems. Together we craft tools and devises that we don’t yet know how to use. Launching an attempt to navigate shared thought space, this research endeavors to chart weather patterns of an ethos: devising systems, structures and methods of measurement, which inevitably shift with the weight of their contents.

In cooperation with The Evergreen State College Press and Ponderosa Movement & Discovery
