The Essentialists: material proofs in extraordinary times is an online exhibition by students in CROS-2003 Materials and the Anthropocene.
Created during the summer lockdown due to COVID-19, The Essentialists: material proofs in extraordinary times is an online exhibition querying materials, memory and values that shape and define our human-nature relationship. Working across various media — from foraged leaves to digital video — students create new visions of life, loss and survival in the Anthropocene.
-- Penelope Smart, tutorial lead and curator
