Applying insights and methods from anthropology, biology and philosophy, AURA focuses on the 'co-species landscapes' that humans and other species come to co-inhabit in the Anthropocene: a new geologic epoch, defined by unprecedented human disturbance of the earth’s ecosystems. The projects suggest that a descriptive and trans-disciplinary approach is needed to understand the kinds of lives that are made and the futures that are possible in the ruined, re-wilded, and unintended landscapes of the Anthropocene. AURA researchers supported and collaborated with various artists for DUMP! Their names appear interspersed alongside respective artists’ names.
