Graduate Student Talk: Wakanene (Sebastian) Kamau

Join Wakanene (Sebastian) Kamau, a PhD student in the Program in Media Arts and Sciences here at MIT, for a conversation exploring the work of Pierre Huyghe in Symbionts.

In this talk, Kamau will discuss strategies for naviagating interspecies cohabitation and the ethics of engineering wild populations of pests. Kamau’s scientific research meets themes in Huyghe’s piece Spider by examining the boundaries between carefully controlled spaces, like the laboratory or the gallery, and conceptions of the wild.

This will be a hybrid event with a live video that can be streamed via our Facebook page at 5:00 PM.
