No doubt you’ve seen evidence of the Anthropocene all around you. Officially, it’s the still-controversial name some scientists propose to give our not-so-hot geological epoch of climate change caused by humans. Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky, along with filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier, call it the “human signature” on the earth, an inscription they capture in such startling films as Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Anthropocene (expected 2018). Now you can witness it more vividly yourself, thanks to photographs and high-resolution murals installed in the gallery, together with film screenings and AR installations.
