Elemental Economics

  • Matter 811 East Burnside Street, Suite 124 Portland, OR, 97214 United States (map)

With 8 billion people on the planet and finite resources we simply cannot continue under the auspice of capitalist expansion. What are our other options though? Could it be that secrets to a sustainable economy have been right under our noses and here on Earth this whole time???

This 2-part event includes a presentation by Renee Sills on how microbes, bacteria, fungi and forest ecologies function at their most basic levels. With inspiration drawn from these natural networks of exchange she'll propose a number of scores and strategies which range from the entirely plausible to the highly fantastical for resource sharing and wealth (re)distribution. At 6PM the gallery will open for First Friday where Renee will be exhibiting research and documentation from her project All Wealth Comes From The Earth.

6pm on, open to the public
