More Information

The Anthropocene is characterized by overwhelming evidence of human impact on Earth’s climate and ecosystems.  In some cases, these impacts may be readily observed or even experienced firsthand. In others, the complexity of natural processes requires specialized technology to pinpoint the source and scale of the problem. What role does technology play in revealing these unseen connections on a changing planet? How can art help translate high-tech science into understanding and action? At the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, scientists have teamed up with visual artists to put the impacts of the Anthropocene into perspective. By transforming complex datasets into emotionally compelling art pieces, artists are helping scientists tell the complicated story of life on a changing planet.
