Yann Mingard‘s work Deposit (2014) at #PVF2017 documents attempts to store the genetic ancestry of our planet’s animals and plants. We are currently living in a geological epoch for which the proposed term is the Anthropocene. The term describes how, in our time, human activity has left an observable and lasting imprint on nature. Environmental disasters and mass extinctions of species have, justly, raised fears about the permanent loss of our biological world heritage. Around the world, obscure vaults have been built to store huge quantities of seeds, DNA and information, with which we can rebuild the lost paradise, if necessary. See more 👉🏾 pvf.fi.
