Paleontologist-futurist Michael Garfield is a midwife to a new myth – helping to articulate our emergent planetary culture and integrate art, science, and philosophy in a new way suited to our accelerating age.  Your support at any level makes projects like these possible:

As a writer at the intersection of evolutionary biology, technology, and creativity – and as host of Future Fossils Podcast – Michael helps map our place in the landscape of deep time and our role as ancestors-in-training.

As a musician, Michael’s avant-guitar has opened hearts and minds across four continents - in caves, museums, jungles, tea houses, yoga classes, and both electronic and folk music festivals. His music has been featured on documentary soundtracks and podcasts; in weddings, lovemaking, and childbirth; and the FDA’s clinical trials for MDMA as a treatment for PTSD.

As an artist, Michael’s verdant and exultant work draws inspiration from his years as scientific illustrator and his adventures in live painting everywhere from Burning Man to NASA-Ames to the Australian Outback. In addition to countless festival appearances and art directorships since 2007, he's held live painting residencies in Boulder, Denver, Phoenix, Kansas City, New Orleans, and Austin.

"[Michael's] illustrating, as Huxley would say, the 'antipodes' of the Divine Imagination."
Alex Grey

"Amazingly well-spoken."
Charles Eisenstein

"Sometimes I think other people have a better grasp on what I do than I do, or at least they are more eloquent at expressing it. Thank you Michael Garfield..."
Android Jones

"It takes creativity to make the next step in a newer, more shocking direction, but it takes a visionary to go beyond the breaking point and meet music on the other end of the spectrum. That’s what Michael Garfield does."
