An installation by artists Armin Linke and Giulia Bruno explores the scientific and social conditions producing the new geological age, the Anthropocene.

Over the course of two years, Armin Linke and Giulia Bruno have closely followed the research of the Anthropocene Working Group (AWG) on their pursuit of a geological starting point for the Anthropocene. Their multimedia installation – created in close collaboration with the AWG scientists – documents the complex evaluation and visualization processes of scientific analysis by making stratigraphic materials tangible to the public. At the same time, it highlights the spaces of social interaction in which these scientific processes take place by shedding light on the specific procedures of work and material translation in the production of geological evidence. In this way, a multi-layered archive of the conditions of demarcating the new geological age emerges.
