Polyflows initiates collective conversation topics using snippets of texts, videos, images, and experimental lectures. In the upcoming session titled Fountains of Youth Cream, the focus centers on the seemingly ordinary theme of age, exploring the phenomenon from various perspectives. How does our society contextualize the biological process of aging? Is age a form of capital? What may underlie the common association between youth and water? Get ready to plunge into these questions.
With her background in anthropology and graphic design, Saskia Smith approaches everything as a fitting field for both visual and anthropological analysis. She sees “knowledge” as an ever-evolving work-in-progress, not as static information waiting to be uncovered, but rather as a collaborative construction fueled by unbridled curiosity. Alongside her research work, Saskia will be hosting an open-to-all reading group at Cloud Seven, welcoming individuals with a deep thirst for rich and engaging conversations.
