Their most recent project, Beware of the Dandelions, is an interactive multimedia installation exploring the relationship between complex sciences and social justice movements through science fiction, music, projections, animation, workshops, and organizing. From 2015-2016 the group took the project on tour to Seattle, Dallas and Detroit. It has drawn critical acclaim and attention from the likes of Art in America, The Independent, Fader, and the Creators Project to name a few. The project is inspired by Grace Lee Boggs, Charity Hicks, Sheddy Rollins, and Detroit movement networks.
