People of Long Now

Michael Garfield

Community Manager

Paleontologist-Futurist Michael Garfield is devoted to helping navigate our age of accelerating weirdness and helping cultivate the curiosity and play we'll need to thrive in it. As host and producer of both Future Fossils Podcast & The Santa Fe Institute's Complexity Podcast, Michael acts as interlocutor for a worldwide community of artists, scientists, and philosophers — a practice that feeds his synthetic and transdisciplinary "mind-jazz" performances in the form of essaymusic, and fine art. Refusing to be enslaved by a single perspective, creative medium, or intellectual community, Michael walks through the walls between academia and festival culture, theory and practice, speaking and performing everywhere from Moogfest to Burning Man, SXSW to Boom Festival, Long Now's Ignite Talks to The Chapel of Sacred Mirrors.

Follow him on Substack and Twitter (or join his book club on Patreon) for a kaleidoscopic avalanche of explorations into human-technology co-evolution, the pre- and post-history of creativity and communication, and other matters of psychedelic futurism.  Follow him on Spotify and Bandcamp to hear what all this inquiry sounds like when played on a guitar.
