The Anthropocene describes the geologic epoch where humans have impacted and altered Earth’s systems. What does this new era mean for our planet and what does the future hold? ‘Welcome to the Anthropocene’ is an art/science collaboration between Constance ARI, The Centre for Marine Socioecology (CMS), The Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) and The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Hobart, Tasmania.

Three experimental artists are working with three leading scientists to explore themes related to our changing planet. These explorations will conclude in an exhibition of new and challenging artworks at IMAS, Hobart in December 2017.
