Viridian & Virescent

Posted March 20, 2023 by Jo Vernaillen, Maja Kuzmanović, and Nik Gaffney


An ode to viriditas, the greening energy of all life.

"In it, greenness is in equal measure metaphysical and physical, a possibility and an actuality, hidden and revealed, irradiating and absorbing intense light and sound waves, open not just to seeing and hearing but also to touching, smelling, tasting, to say nothing of the activity of greening that sees us, hears us, smells, tastes, and touches us. [...] Human or not, life is a green mass, and that which enlivens it is a symphony in green."
—Michael Marder
