The Anti-Anthropocene Library
The Anti-Anthropocene Library is an Earth-generative generous project which encourages giving without directives, conditions, hitches, caveats, bargains or strings.
The Anti-Anthropocene Library eschews sectioning time as past, present, future. It denies/defies any/all so called “-cenes". It confounds concepts of linear time. It envelopes, accepts, absorbs all time. It assumes freedom from the binary of positive/negative. It does not recognize difference between this or that, us and them, nature and non-nature, human and animal, human and nature.
You are invited to consider the ordinariness and the utter miracle of the existence of each item. Each contains the entire history of the Earth. Each effortlessly holds multiple stories, art, poetry, music, science, and boundless wonder.
