Geologists are saying that we are already living in a new era on planet Earth called #Anthropocenus. They say it was generated by the industrialised nations and their elites after turning Industry into the new engine that defines the whole planet´s dynamics.

The truth is that a certain critical approach to indu­strialization and its consequences reached relative levels of attention in most developed countries, but still, an economic model based on the uncontrolled and abusive exploitation of natural resources and excessive consumption of manufactured goods is still being taken as an example for a prosperous future in most underdeveloped countries, despite its obvious failure. nthropocenus or, according to sociologist Jason Moore,  Capitalocenus, raised both, inequality and global warming, to previously unseen levels. On top of this,  the lack ofhonest macroeconomic commitments to prevent or even try to slow down the consequences of this dynamic of excess would have effects that are hard to predict and will be probably be harder to face.

The signs are evident for the environmental decadence of our planet but still those countries located in the periphery of the system are lead into feeding the problematic with the young vigour that novelty brings. After decades of historical exploitation at all the imaginable levels by the official metropolis, Africa is now hopelessly embracing the remains of other´s mistakes becoming a target market for low quality and highly toxic products with hardly any planning made to manage the “after party”.
With this state of things we decided to approach all environmental issues as a whole, projecting what the challenges would be for the territories that are more exposed and less prepared for the consequences of this excess. We decided to visualise the effects of macro-economics into African micro-routines. Research is underway to produce genetically modified animals for consumption, but studies are still uncertain about possible effects on the consumer´s health and the environment.

  • diane_zokleI don't understand your caption - it is too broad, however, I think what you are trying to say is, quite simply, that the local and global ecosystems have become damaged beyond repair. The DNA of all things is being fatally altered by the choices of industrialized nations and global elitests and these changes are irreversible. I think the real problem is not what we can see, but the chosen ignorance toward the causes. I have never seen, read or heard anything like it. How can people just keep on going without a single care knowing that there are two-headed goats being born as a consequence of man-made mass destruction? I don't know what else to say other than it's time to build a spaceship and beam out of here.
