''Anthropocene Mountain, A Yearlong Photographic/Video Meditation on 8 Billion People on the Planet'':

 

The Anthropocene Mountain meditation is a deep photographic look at one city, Chicago, as representative of major cities globally, considered in relation to the air, water, wildlife,  and the earth that it touches. Photographed as so many have captured mountain ranges or vast forests. But this is manmade, as are most of the threats facing not only our civilization but our very planet. Scientists have discussed naming this post-Holocene epoch, the Anthropocene era. This would signify that for the first time in the earth’s history man has inalterably impacted our planet’s geology and environment.  Liveable cities are a key building block to the future of our planet. Come explore the wonder and horror of where we are today.
