A site-specific video installation that visualizes the dynamic between the natural and man-made, Anthropocene explores the relationship between New York’s Central Park and the surrounding city. The term “anthropocene” describes the extent of influence human activities have had on Earth’s ecosystems. Two intersecting cinematic video channels track the terrain from the southwest corner to the northeast corner of Central Park employing LiDAR scanning, a technology used in archaeology to digitally map objects using reflected laser light.
