Provisional Landscapes

The history of the Earth is legible as a layered stratagraphic chronicle of millions of years of events. Our planet is a massive physical document of cosmic exchanges, traces of the stages of developing life, shifts in bodies of land and water, and monumental mass extinctions. The Anthropocene stratum will document human kind's various accumulative and reductive alterations to the Earth that have been fueled by a search for the mineral and material wealth deposited and condensed matter within these embodied past aeons.

I examine the human role of shaping the current geological era and its possible interpretations as a chronicle of our activity, these works that question our impulse to alter the Earth's story through the rearrangement of past accumulations of matter and what our existence and the scale of our actions mean in terms of a geological time scale.
