Craft In The Anthropocene

How will the Anthropocene era redefine raw material and craft ?

Artist, designer & "material teller", Yesenia Thibault-Picazo searches for the answer with a research led project, "Craft In The Anthropocene", that investigates the future of geology and interrogates our evolving relationship with nature.

The Anthropocene era is a new geological epoch evidencing the impact of global civilisation on Earth. The term was coined a decade ago by Paul Crutzen and suggests that humankind has become over time a global geophysical force intertwined with the most powerful forces of nature.

Through our collective actions, we spread specific elements in nature, rare in the pre-human era, which will become prevalent sediments, building up the future planetary strata.
