Superfundraiser! a benefit for Cabinet Magazine

May 31st saw the presentation of Superfundraiser!
Working with Cabinet Magazine I devised a menu and discussion that took Cabinet's office's proximity to the Gowanus Canal as a starting point.

Expanding out from the Gowanus and its potential saviour, the oyster! To Chernobyl and the "exclusion zone's" booming, though radioactive, wildlife population. To downtown Detroit's wild rabbit hunting ground. Superfundraiser! looked at flora and fauna that could, potentially, undo damage done, cleanse soils to aid urban homesteading and a developing agricultural/food system revolution and the potential for life to go on in environments too toxic to support their human creator.

The night began with a cocktail devised by Eben Klemm, a toast skyped-in by Peter Galison and concluded with a presentation by Steven Featherstone.
