Michael Garfield – How To Live in the Future: About

About

Michael Garfield (Austin, Texas) is the world's only paleontologist-futurist, a new-mythographer whose work in every medium articulates a vision of emergent planetary renaissance – and celebrates the curiosity and play required of us in an age when evolution has become technology.

Public speaker, essayist, avant-guitarist, and live painter, Michael bears the standard for a lineage of scholar-mystics rooted in their common awe of natural history and the living world – even as he challenges the categories of "technology" and "nature," pointing past our hyperlinked ideas to the immediate and indivisible reality that's available to us in every moment.

RESUMÉ
ONE-SHEET

"Michael is a bio-mechanical lightning rod, he possess a keen intellect and possibly too much talent, and I have never seen him do anything other than stimulate, antagonise, elevate, shake-not-stir, and generally get involved in the center of where ever his roaming griot spirit might be..."
– James Oroc, author of Tryptamine Palace

"If the society we are moving towards is one where artists like Michael pervade the scene,
then that is a society I judge worthy for my children."
– Matt Bovard, for LostinSound.org
