THE META SCENE TO THE ANTHROPOCENE


Imagining a scenario where a future archeologist is cataloguing the remains of this generation, and inferring the significance of the objects left behind and preserved in the ground. The unusual geological period of COVID-19 where there was a reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions, but also a rapid increase in single-use plastics. It was also a significant anthropological period where digital interactions became the dominant mode of interaction. A period where there were discussions about the age of 'traversing the metaverse'. However, for many it was not about living in someone else's metaverse, but having more control over the way they live in the real-world. 

The true anthropocene is not geographical but digital

and the waste, destruction and extinctions

were just proof we existed through it all.
