Psychozoic era

Contemporary art, 2018
Audio guide is available for this artwork

Description of the artwork «Psychozoic era»

The work is a video projected on a wall, in which we see a series of satellite images taken in areas for recycling industrial waste. It also includes several videos made in industrial areas and photographs of paintings by the artist from the same series.
The term "psychozoic era" was introduced by Academician V. Vernadsky, a Russian and Soviet natural scientist, thinker and public figure. He called it the era in which we live, it replaced Cenozoic in the 20th century. This is the era of the domination of the mental activity of mankind, which can change the face of the planet.
And the satellite images presented in the Otdelnov project show the process of these changes, which are often invisible from the surface of the earth. The author achieves an interesting effect. At first glance, satellite photos look like abstract canvases. They can cause aesthetic pleasure, because without knowledge of the context, the images seem beautiful. But we understand that this is a deadly beauty, - these are pictures of ecological disaster.
