Oil: A Love Story
Our friends at Solutions Twin Cities will be hosting an event that examines our past present and future relationship with oil. We partnered with them last year to host Innovation 2008 because they take a very innovative approach to presenting information. The video of the event is available here.
Our society is in love with oil and oil is an essential ingredient to most of our modern machinery. This event traces the historical origins and political consequences of our love for oil, and the prospects of falling out of love into a post-petroleum future.
On Thursday, November 12th at Intermedia Arts they will host a fast paced, media rich program which will combine captivating short presentations, participatory games and new social technology to examine the subject of oil from many vantages. Your vantage point will be included -- the audience will be encouraged to interact in a variety of ways throughout the course of the evening.
The event will showcase four unique insights into our love/hate relationship with this inanimate object:
• Oil Science Theater - George Henderson
• Oil As a Way of Life - Matt Huber
• Oil & the "Technological Unconscious - Bruce Braun
• Peak Oil: Imagining and Planning the Post-Carbon World - Matthew Schneider-Mayerson
The event is free and open to the public. For more information follow this link.
