The Unmonumental and Indeterminate:
The New Commons of the Anthropocene
November 14, Monday, 5:30-7pm
Maraschi Room, Fromm Hall, University of San Francisco
Kris Timken and Cynthia Hooper are multimedia artists whose poetic visual and auditory narratives, informed by research into the landscapes and systems represented, aim to dissolve pre-Anthropocene divisions between humans and nature. Hooper’s video series “Anthropogenic Aquascapes” is featured in Timken’s book The New Explorers: Making Meaning in the 21st Century American Landscape profiling the encounters with landscapes of twelve contemporary female artist-adventurers.
