The Seed Salon

Michael Shanks + Lynn Hershman Leeson

In 2005, Shanks and three colleagues started The Presence Project to explore issues of presence and documentation across the arts and sciences. Hershman Leeson joined soon after and, together with Shanks and others in the Stanford Humanities Lab, created Life to the Second Power, an online encounter with her archive. As they see the project through to its completion in 2010, Shanks and Hershman Leeson plan to further explore memory, identity, and place. Seed invited them to advance the conversation.

To read the full Salon, order Science is Culture: Conversations at the New Intersection of Science + Society - out October 12.
