The Labyrinth Project

The Labyrinth Project at UCLA

Exploring the Maze of Nature in Los Angeles.The Labyrinth Project explores the diverse and surprising ways in which Los Angeles is full of different natures--- a veritable trophic cascade of the absurd and surprising. Wetlands, lawns, rats, cats, coyotes, mountain lions interact with human affect, state power, indigenous politics, aesthetic pleasure, local governmental power and much more. It is a collaborative research project at UCLA, based in the Institute for Society and Genetics, and in collaboration with the Laboratory for Environmental Narrative Strategies, and using a mix of participant-observation, structured interviewing, collaborative urban anthropology, historical and archival digging, ecological observation, and analysis of social media content. Does this maze have a monster? Did you bring thread?
