Addressing the devastation that climate change and plastic pollution can wreak on marine life, the Brazilian artist recreates a desolate ocean floor afflicted by coral bleaching and the human impact on reef ecosystems. The title even nods to a term scientists use to describe Earth’s largest-ever mass extinction that occurred 250 million years ago but is now being used to warn about the Anthropocene and the consequences that lie ahead. Miami, in particular, offers a poignant setting as a city grappling with impending sea level rise, lending credence to the point that Chachamovits is driving home—in the end, we’re all connected.
