Come socialize and infiltrate language by creating new words and imagery to show that humans are a part of nature, not separate from it. Cambridge-based artist Freedom Baird will briefly introduce the Human Nature Dictionary and talk about about the origins of the human/nature divide. Then we’ll sit around snacking and cooking up new words and images. No previous word-coining experience required. Art supplies will be provided. Non-English contributions to the dictionary are welcome! As are non-alphabet-based symbolic entries.

This is an inclusive, experimental, poetic project to reclaim the creation of language in order to reshape culture. Feel free to invite people. Refreshments will be provided. All are welcome!

Some examples of words participants have created include: absentshaping, florapportunist, and snowfelled, as well as frondlebath and terramour.
