For millennia, humans have been making our mark on the Earth by selectively nurturing and depleting the natural world. More recently, through scientific innovation, we’ve moved on to decoding and programming nature—cultivating life forms and ecosystems that are decidedly manufactured. The artists featured in this exhibition explore both the fantastical possibilities and upsetting implications of our legacy as world makers.
