THE ANTHROBSCENE – Media and the Environment course exhibition
The Fall 2020 ‘The Anthrobscene’* Exhibition features critical artworks by masters students as final outcomes of the Media and Environment Course at the Department of Media, Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. The works range from the sonification of air pollution, plastiglomerates, digital labor and mining, fossil fuel depletion, electronic trash, visualizing radio frequency radiation to de-terraforming the human impacts on our planet. The common theme running through all the artworks is tracing the materiality of digital media and presenting ecologies of environmental damage in the so-called Anthropocene.
