The current group show at Canada, Anthropocene, casts a very wide net. The term, which means “new human,” is the name for the current geological period, which began with the transition from hunting-gathering to agriculture, leading to the foundation of formal societies.
Global warming is a phrase that pops up just about everywhere, ensuring that we confront our planet's worsening climate changes. Designer Milton Glaser, however, is aiming to stress that the reality of the environmental situation is much worse than the term 'warming' would suggest.
