The title for our installation describes a narrative of the land, the impact of human activity on the earth and subsequently, on our climate. In our process, we have adopted the term Anthropocene, which describes this time of mass extinction of plant and animals species, pollution and atmospheric change. Through the juxtaposition of ideas, F I C T I O N expresses concerns for these impacts. Using aspects of the materiality of language, cultural mark making, text, object manipulation and layering, we trigger meanings and references. Curving the shapes of the background panels, they resemble old maps or stretched hides. Cutting into their surfaces, making additions, taking away, working with pattern and repetition, narratives evolve. Animal or plant forms morph into abstract shapes, architectural details become geometric relief, or vice versa. Mimicking the adaptive strategies of life forms, our collective story involves improvisation.
