The Anthropocene Paradox

Type: Pencil drawing · Dimensions: +/- 70 x 60 cm

The anthropocene is a new and informal geologic term used to indicate an epoch when human behavior had a significant global impact on the Earth’s ecosystems. It may be considered with the start of the industrial revolution (late eighteenth century) and has been growing ever since. It indicates a time frame where the collective impact of our species on wild life, atmosphere, minerals,.. is obvious and massive. The term was first used in 2000 by Paul Crutzen.

At the same time, feel fewer and fewer individuals themselves capable to modify their reality and feel unable to influence their surroundings.

This is called the anthropocene paradox.
