anthropocene survey


During a residency at the Tourette convent, 10 doctoral students (air chemistry, ecology, micro-meteorology, bacteriology, economics, agri-food, computer science and geography) and 10 professionals (scenographer, curators, painter, photographer, architects, urban planners and illustrator) have deployed an interdisciplinary work methodology. Together, they responded to a public order for an anthropocene survey with the objective of developing an artistic journey for the Communauté de Communes du Pays de l'Arbresle (CCPA).
