Lecture: Work in progress: Garden of Ghost Flowers. Session 1. Peter Godfrey-Smith with Lundahl & Seitl and Untold Garden

In the fall of 2021, Lundahl & Seitl, Untold Garden, and a reference group gathered in the library of Magasin III. After the artists’ introductions to the work Garden of Ghost Flowers, which is under process, philosopher Peter Godfrey-Smith gave a digital lecture from his home in Sydney. He explained his materialistic theory on how consciousness ­– defined as the ability to have a subjective or perceptible experience – occurs gradually in organisms; a process that gives rise to states where consciousness is in part present, in part absent.
