Welcome to the Anthropocene: overcome with mountains of stuff we face a larger challenge as our consumption overwhelms the once glacial slowness of geological processes.
The diagrams used as the source imagery in this work show the typical geomorphological features before and after the retreat of a glacier. The envelopes used in this drawing installation are from bills, bank statements and letters received by the artist.
