These artistic investigations look into the fashioning of our own human footprint as artifact.

This heterogeneous art making approach can be associated with what has recently been labeled as the “Anthropocene”. The term Anthropocene or Holocene Epoch begins when human activities started to have a significant global impact on earth’s geology and ecosystems.

The basic concept of these art projects can be strengthened by a perceptible model of a geologically (human disposed materials) stratification. Over time, when the weathering forces of nature serve as the ultimate liberator of all human creations, these remains might resemble just another strange abstracted strata upon a future landscape… guess that makes me a landscape artist.
