"Biophilia is the urge to affiliate with other living forces. The term literally means the love of life or living systems. Biophilia is a residency for Canadian and international artists interested in ecology, nature and life sciences to interact with the living world. It will take place over a week in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada in the summer of 2018. The residency will involve daily excursions into natural habitats for collection of materials and exploration of a wide range of Canadian wilderness. Expeditions into forests, wildlife sanctuaries, farms and research labs will be enriched by biologists, naturalists and experts."
