Collecting Prey & Pollution


Ali Cat Leeds from Entangled Roots Press just finished screen prints of a beautiful poster she created to help get the word out about our efforts to design low-tech protocols for gauging air pollution levels in the places where houseless people make their homes. It turns out that spider webs not only trap flies and other tasty treats, but they also collect diesel particulate matter—which creates huge problems for houseless people and others living near highways and in industrial areas. Shout out to RESTING SAFE team member Chris Hawn who is leading this work, along with Dillon Mahmoudi, Nava Rastegar, and others in Baltimore!
