By pushing her signature layered projection technique, Miwa Matreyek creates an emotional and dreamlike meditation on climate catastrophe and the Anthropocene, the current proposed era in which human influence has affected nearly every realm of Earth's natural systems. Miwa's shadow traverses macro and micro scales, as her silhouette changes shape to experience the world from various perspectives. An earth overflowing with garbage. A person drowning in an ocean full of plastic. A school of fish caught in a trawl net. The work will be an emotionally impactful and embodied illustration of the news headlines we see every day, and the complex damage humanity causes to the world - and what it could mean for all of us; humanity, as well as other life forms, and the earth itself - to live in this changing world.
