Time Capsules from the Capitalocene

This series examines the way petro-driven capitalism has harmed the earth, its people, its creatures, through found materials, such as animal bones and plastic waste, pollution and decay. Contemplating the end of a settler colonialism, we are left bare with a consumerist sublime of beauty and toxicity. Though filled with despair, these scenes also offer a playful critique of what once was, and a celebration of what can still be. Images as time capsules serve as surviving traces of our origins stories and contemporary concerns.
