We are living in the anthropocene -- a time in which everything is being determined by the activities of just one soft-skinned, warm-blooded, short-lived, pedestrian species. How best to make our way through the ruins that we have made? This anthology of commissioned work tries to answer this as it explores new and enduring cultural landscapes in a celebration of local distinctiveness.
