The Pit, Te Ara Hihiko

What is an Environmental Health Clinic (xCLINIC) and why would they pay me to ride my bike? What is smarter than a smart city? What would my neighborhood look like with an xCLINIC, FARMACY and an OOZ? How do I coproduce a delicious, biodiverse and healthy urban future? Why is CHILDxLABOR in my future? How do I get a tree as my landlord? Will I get hurt wresting Rhinoceros Beetles and why do I have to wear the helmet? Why do I bring my junk mail to the BIOCHAR BBQ and what if I don't know how to salsa? Which is my snail and how does it email me? What do I barter for my blood test results? How do I become a certified FLORISTA and why do pollinators care if I hula hoop?

These and other pressing questions will be answered in the xLECTURE and the xCLINIC explaining why organism design works to increase human health, why the best proxy for common good is shared human and environmental health; how we can measurably increase biodiversity, particularly in the urban context, and how we might exploit smart city technology to raise standards of evidence, structure participatory research; attract diverse human and non-human inhabitants and create a desireable future.

Natalie Jeremijenko is an Associate Professor in Art at The Steeinhardt School of Culture, Education & Human Development at New York University.
