Benjamin Grant: "Overview: Earth and Civilization in the Macroscope"

The Long Now Foundation's Seminars About Long-term Thinking presents:


Benjamin Grant: "Overview: Earth and Civilization in the Macroscope"


Civilization is both astonishing and astonishingly various when viewed from slightly above. Not so far above as to be lost in planetary context, but just high enough to see a fascinating thing whole, entire, intensely peculiar and informative. The glory is in the high-resolution details, in the perpetually surprising god’s-eye perspective, and in the shocking patterns that we arrange things in without even knowing it.


Revel in a host of such images and the understanding that emerges from them with collector/curator Benjamin Grant, author of the book Overview and host of the Instagram project “Daily Overview.”


Doors open at 7:00pm
