A public engagement project with art/design duo DodoLab.
PHASE THREE: ANIMALS WE COULD LEARN FROM
“Six stories of animal adaptations we may be able to learn from, parallel ideas, related questions and thoughts for further investigation collected during DodoLab’s research at the University of Lethbridge.”
PHASE TWO: RESULTS ARE IN.
From March 18th to 22nd DodoLab conducted a research project asking students, faculty, staff and community members at the University of Lethbridge where the university might be “laying its eggs on the ground,” referring to the unfortunate adaptation that led to the Dodo’s extinction. We spoke with over 125 people about change and the barriers to adaptation. Their responses revealed that many people were thinking deeply about the role of the university, today and in the future, for the students and also for society in general. The “eggs” below are a selection of particularly thought provoking responses. Further research will be conducted in the fall.

PHASE ONE: #EGGSONGROUND
DodoLab is looking for parallels between the dodo’s story and the situation we humans find ourselves in today. Where do you see barriers to adaptation and change? Let us know in the comments below!
