Humans have existed on our planet for thousands of years with little damage or harmful impact to the natural world. In the last 100 years population growth, our constant pursuit for growth and exploitation of natural resources has been at the cost of the environment. Our adoption of a master-servant relationship is leading to collapsed eco-systems, poverty and a changing climate that threatens our own survival.
One of the common arguments against the notion of man-made climate change is that our planet has always cycled through periods of heating and periods of cooling, and whilst this is true, the extent and pace of change is unprecedented. Earth simply hasn’t been through this before.
I wanted to depict a future, unrecognizable state, unnatural and surreal. What will today’s children think of our current inaction and what choices will they have to make?
Yesterday’s Memo is part of my Australian Nature Unbound series which seeks to highlight the complexity and beauty of our natural environment.
