Jasmine Targett explores the impact of human existence and consumerism on the environment. Tagged the Anthropocene era, it has left a far greater footprint on universal ecologies than anticipated.
Referencing crystallised Coke bottles and Nike shoes from her Future Fossil series, Targett says ‘In hindsight consumerism will appear to be a culture so contagious it created an unquenchable thirst that halted natural life cycles, changing the course of nature and its governance over the natural world, heralding the beginning of the Anthropogenic era.’
