My research is broadly concerned with the visualisation of climate change impacts.
I am proposing that the Anthropocene is the experience of a warming Earth where humanity stands in the face of daunting natural phenomena as a manifestation of its own doing.
Earth’s Self Correcting Systems, series 2 considers our environmental predicament visualizing two global fire events from last summer. I propose that the most relevant contemporary sublime is the ecological one.
