The Anthropocene is a new geologic epoch that is marked by the actions of humans in the annals of the world. When future stratigraphers look back they will see the fossils of our cities, our excavations, and our need to consume natural resources.
This is a new epoch. One that will be defined by the consequences of our actions and the care of our thoughts. Acknowledging ourselves as a force of change on the geologic scale is both paralyzing and empowering. It is surely an Atlantean weight we must carry, a reality we must confront and a legacy we must consider with our every choice.
“ANTHROPO/CENE” explores artifacts of our current world in hopes of promoting a shift in perspective of our affect on the geologic history of this planet.
