- David Brin

Discovering and creating a
folksonomy of the city's
urban wildlife. People
moved through a range of
microclimates observing
and identifying the plants,
animals and fungi they find
along the route. A 'Rover'
vehicle was used to film and
collect data. Participants
were able to think up their
own ways to classify and
record the wildlife they
discovered.
