False Geology

29th January 2013

Yesenia Thibault-picazo one of the most interesting students on the Textile Futures Ma is exploring a future whereby our natural history is no longer as we know it. As we deplete resources on our planet and as industry and infrastructure is transforming our landscapes we are changing Earth for ever.

Exploring the idea that we are now living through a geological epoch known as the Anthropocene, a time where man and nature become one and we begin to re consider artificial and natural and what it means in our future she explores the idea of future fossils.

Speculating that future fossils and future 'natural' materials will be manufactured from materials that are characteristic of our industrialised times, her project asks how we will envision the future of geology and of fossils and asks how will our ancestors experience our time and history through the raw materials that they will be mining in the future?
