Food Security for Succulents
Food security is a global concern, and a cross-species challenge. Even the most successful survival strategies may lose effectiveness in the radically altered environmental conditions of the Anthropocene. For photosynthetic organisms, food security depends on the availability of sunlight, which could be significantly diminished by factors including air pollution and solar radiation management. At Emerge, experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats will address these challenges by developing alternative energy sources for Arizona succulents, ranging from wind to nuclear power. A practical exploration of technologies that might benefit plants, his project is also a provocation to rethink our approach to the present environmental crisis.
