Artist Pallavi Sen (b. 1989, Bombay) leads an informal conversation about the sculptural artist’s garden that she and a group of Williams College students are cultivating as part of the Clark’s Humane Ecology: Eight Positions exhibition. Sen and the students walk through the garden and discuss the process of cultivation from seed-to-seed, as well as the garden's double status as an artwork and productive food source.

Humane Ecology: Eight Positions features a group of contemporary artists who consider the intertwined natural and social dimensions of environmental questions: Eddie Rodolfo Aparicio, Korakrit Arunanondchai, Carolina Caycedo, Allison Janae Hamilton, Juan Antonio Olivares, Christine Howard Sandoval, Pallavi Sen, and Kandis Williams. The exhibition is presented in outdoor and indoor spaces at the Clark, including both the Clark Center and Lunder Center at Stone Hill.
