“The Anonymous Anthropocene” is a collaborative exercise on what constitutes natural, organic, man-made & technological subjects & objects via various apps & smartphones, all of which are powered by portable solar power banks; “Safe Spaces, Casualties, Prostheses” is a lecture/presentation version of my essay with the same title, focusing on certain threads & disconnections between Todd Haynes’ film ” Safe “, Chris Jordan’s photographic series “Midway: Message from The Gyre” & artist Pinar Yoldas’ various speculative body organs.
