Project: The Everything Change

‘The Everything Change’ is a series of mixed-media collages which visually interpret key ideas from Margaret Atwood’s Madaddam trilogy, juxtaposed with information drawn from scientific journal articles and news reports. These collages marry Atwood’s fiction with the real world science it is based upon, in order to draw attention to the way these different genres – fiction and science journalism – address urgent ecological issues. How might such ‘genre blending’ images visually communicate the complex entanglements that arise from humans meddling in the natural world? How might ambiguous images be used to facilitate transdisciplinary conversations about transitioning away from anthropocentric understanding the world?
