What does it mean to talk to rocks or furniture? What does it mean to model the human on plants? Join SPURSE for a series of exercises and conversations over a very light meal on living well after Nature in the age of the Anthropocene.

A series of exercises and conversation with SPURSE about how to imagine and live in a world without Nature or Culture.
