Three Cheers for the Immortal Sea! (2021)

This series of visual essays were created in response to a collaborative reading group, focusing on the themes and issues of Bruno Latours’ “Down to Earth” as well as the intersection of the Anthropocene and the Capitolocene.

Each poster serves as a visual essay for a longer text, including: 
  • Amitav Gosh, The Great Derangement: Climate Change and the Unthinkable, 2016
  • Rachel Carson, Undersea, 1937
  • Heather Davis, Toxic Progeny: The Plastisphere and Other Queer Futures, 2015
  • Naomi Klein, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate, 2014

These posters were selected for Le Signe Biennale internationale de design graphique in Chaumont, France in Fall of 2021.

They were shown as part of a group exhibition at the IABR / International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (2021) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and at Het HEM (2021) in Hembrug, the Netherlands
