The Antrhopocene alludes to the identification of a new epoch; a new era in the geological time scale marked by the effects of human activity – i.e. mining. We have had such a major impact on the surface of the Earth that we are causing a noticeable and large scale geological shift.
All the stones in the installation where collected from mining dumpsites around Johannesburg; mining debris that has been left-over from the gold mining process.
