Anthropocene Book I


From the artist’s website:

“This portable manuscript recounts the six days of Creation as written in the Book of Genesis. But holes soon begin to appear in the pages and then multiply, making the text increasingly difficult to read. These lacunae are in fact the silhouettes of extinct animal species, wiped out by human activity within my own lifetime. Their absence undermines the meaning and integrity of the text: By punching holes in the web of life, we are destroying something sacred, the original Book of Creation, without which all our scriptures are meaningless.”
