The Anthropocene Project | An Opening

Sat, Jan 12, 2013 Dialog with Emma Marris and Erle Ellis. Introduction: Cecelia Watson

On windmills, small, enchanting villages in China, weeds and energy-efficient windows, what is beautiful about the Anthropocene? Does the Anthropocene stand for the ugly, for the warning? A conversation about dimensions and a refusal of the beauty of untouched nature between the author Emma Marris and the ecologist Erle Ellis. Dialog with Emma Marris (Autorin, Columbia) and Erle Ellis (Department of Geography and Environmental Systems, University of Maryland, Baltimore).
