In development work with Dan Harvey—Our work, gathered under the title “Solastalgia,” engages with the problems of imagining, and hence of representing, the Anthropocene. Because of its double scalar shift—at once too big and too small, spatially, and too slow, temporally, to be easily grasped—the problems heralded by the term can too easily elude the human scale. In these works, part of an ongoing project on Speculative Psychology, we seek to represent some of the psychic and affective dimensions—feelings of anxiety, of being out-of-place or out-of-time, and so on—that our generation and those that follow us cannot avoid. Through large-scale photography, digitally altered video and sound installation, we hope to create a space that compels the viewer to imagine the coming estrangement of climate dyscorpia.
