Intro
The Anthropocene, the current geological era, designates the time in which the human being has become a force for transformation of the planet. Although in this era there have been discoveries and inventions that have improved the conditions of existence of human beings on the Planet, it is no less true that today's man faces problems such as global warming and the limits of nature and it is daily witness the changes that put life on Earth at risk.
 

Artist list

Irene Palomar
In the Anthropocene, as a consequence of what has been said, the loss and destruction of spaces and shelters for living organisms takes place. An example of what is expressed is the plastic pollution of the seas in which immense islands are formed (two in the Pacific, two in the Atlantic, one in the Indian Ocean and others of incipient formation) where the plastic degrades into microplastics due to the action of the sun and is therefore food for marine fauna and therefore for human beings.

Nets, plastics and pollution... environmental disaster.

Man is the agent of modification of the planet and we can say that unfortunately he is destroying it on many occasions.
The pieces in the collection metaphorically show the reality of plastic waste that reaches the sea and mixes with the remains of fishing nets discarded by fishing boats. The sea currents and the winds do their job... and cause this waste to accumulate and form these large islands... a real ecological disaster...
Man is destroying his habitat...
