Anti-Anthropocene is an installation of sound and moving image, addressing climate and the Anthropocene. In collaboration with the land, I want to dismantle the current representations standard photography holds of nature. The work is a combination of photographic processes. Including archival photographs from NASA, screen recordings of Google Earth in locations affected by climate change and scans of objects from these locations. These are all then combined into videos, accompanied by ambient sound, then projected into the space to create an immersive experience for the viewers.
Kat Wilkie completed her honours in photography at RMIT, Melbourne in 2020. Her practice involves contemporary methods to document the environmental degradation due to human impact. She predominantly works in ways that challenge our perspective of the land and encourages the viewers to engage with the environment during a time of disconnect between humanity and the land.
