Anthropocene Practices – published in The Mass issue 1 Extinction (January 2020)

My short article Anthropocene Practices: Considering Adverse Impacts by Repurposing Trash investigates the process of making my installation Fill Me (2019). The article suggests that the plastic materials I used inherently reference lifestyle in the Anthropocene and that these materials were key actants which prompted me to construct the installation around that theme. Furthermore I suggest that reusing discarded materials in practice may be an ethical way to make art in an environmentally degrading world.
