Enter the physical manifestation of an online doomsday forum, confront the reality of a survival bunker or surrender yourself to a guided meditation on extinction and transcendence as you explore aspects of eco-anxiety.
How are we, as individuals and communities, psychologically processing strange weather patterns, environmental degradation and species loss associated with climate change? Through interviews with experts, conversations with communities, and participation in online forums, Tiyan Baker and Loren Kronemyer have gathered some of the diverse responses to climate anxiety that pervade our collective consciousness.
In Apocalypse Anonymous, three retrofitted shipping containers offer portals into these different preparedness strategies, each containing an multi-sensory installation featuring first-hand documents from communities of people who are getting ready for the end.
At once confronting and comforting, Apocalypse Anonymous offers an opportunity to consciously face the climate-altered future of our species together.
