Earthworks: Mapping the Anthropocene
Earth Works: Mapping the Anthropocene
Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach, FL
September 5th, 2017 – January 7th, 2018
The Anthropocene defines Earth’s most recent geologic time period as being human-influenced, or anthropogenic, based on overwhelming global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric and other earth system processes are now altered by humans.
Transdisciplinary artist Justin Brice Guariglia has been granted access to the NASA/JPL Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) mission. Guariglia’s term will run through 2020. His images from these experiences, paired with the creative and ground-breaking manner in which he presents them, serve as a creative compilation that map the impact of man on the planet within the areas of agriculture, mining, and the rapid change in the polar icecaps.
Earth Works will feature more than 30 of the artist’s works that are as valuable as science as they are as creative acts. The works range in scale from 30x 40 inches to 16 x 12 feet and printed using a process of the artist’s own invention. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog and already has a commitment from the Fisher Museum at the University of Southern California as an additional venue with other venues to be announced.
