In the current Age of the Anthropocene, defined by human interference with nature, material exploration reverts common man-made materials back into those resembling nature. And with plastics set to be the new fossils and our oceans host to the plastisphere, these new materials give the illusion of wilderness in a constructed environment. See the transformative and textural work of Sophie Rowley or the crafted, fragile destructions of Faustine Steinmetz.
