Collaboration On Oldest Living Things


Wonders of life
All around us
Even below our feet
Letting go of what we know
To begin learning all the unknowns
Feeling that there is
More to life
Than we ever imagined

Thanks to Jonathan Minard for the short film above presenting Rachel Sussman Carl Zimmer and Hans Ulrich Obrist, and the book that they collaborated on:

Since 2004 artist Rachel Sussman has been researching, working with biologists, and traveling all over the world to photograph continuously living organisms 2,000 years old and older. The work spans disciplines, continents, and millennia: it’s part art and part science, has an innate environmentalism, and is driven by existential inquiry. She begins at ‘year zero,’ and looks back from there, photographing the past in the present. Together, her portraits capture the living history of our planet – and what we stand to lose in the future.

    1. You’re the first to mention problems with viewing my posts, but I do know what you mean. There was another blogger that half the time I couldn’t view his posts for it was all black. I hope that not happening to my blog .Could it bee the theme I changed too? If you visit again, let me know if you have the same problem. By the way I do enjoy post very much. Even with all your car problems on your last trip. My biggest fear going place far from home with older cars
