Description:
From researchers, the Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel) published, on December 9, 2020, a scientific study in the journal Nature entitled “The global mass produced by man exceeds all living biomass”. From the summary, a sentence clearly situates the subject: “We find that the Earth is exactly at a point of intersection. By 2020, anthropogenic mass, which recently doubled roughly every 20 years, will exceed all living biomass worldwide.’’ Inspired by the Weitzman study, this work considers the anthropogenic transformation of the terrestrial biosphere in ways that humanity alters terrestrial ecosystems. The work explores the notion that both intentional and unintentional alterations depend on complex interactions between intersecting and evolving factors such as population density, technical capacity, mode of resource use and the use opportunities afforded by native and transformed ecosystems. These factors interacting and evolving across time and space within and across human systems and the biosphere are conveyed by the repetition of movement, colour changes, and blurry text imagery that signifies global anthropogenic change - change that may ultimately amplify greater negative effects propagated by humans on the planet, such as aggression, conquest and domination.
