The Last Humans
Alienation in the Anthropocene
Michael Whelan

We have fundamentally altered the earth’s ecosystem by disrupting the natural rhythm of our planet and in doing so have created a new chapter in the evolution of Earth and a new stage of uncertainty.

During this process, our species has become more distant from the essence of what it means to be human and we continue to develop out of synchronicity with how we should live individually, collectively and as a species. As we enter a new geological era, bringing with it greater uncertainties and extremities, it is becoming more and more obvious that society is incapable of self regulation. While the planet becomes even more human dominated and more vulnerable, we continue to exploit its valuable resources and having profound and influential impacts on the place we call home.
