The Earth Issue 002: IMPACT – a collaborative effort by The Earth Issue and Archive Collective.

Our second issue unpacks two forms of “impact”: both the positive and negative traces left by humanity on its natural environment in the context of the anthropocene, and the possibilities for environmentalist impact at the conjunction of art and activism.

As media consumption becomes increasingly fragmented, divisive, and delivered in indigestible portions of scrolling, statistics, news and op-eds, the simple act of switching off and pulling back from public discourse presents itself as an attractive alternative to the political fray. If there’s one thing we’ve learnt from our interviews with artists and ecologists while putting together this issue, it’s this: the most effective breed of environmentalism starts at home, so to speak, in cultivating a personal philosophy centered around applied ecology and purpose-driven, conscious engagement with one’s environment.

Antonio Guerra

The project “Ver de Acción”, explores the limits between natural and cultural, creating an experience with the landscape and space interaction. In order to do so, Guerra use photography as a means of creating a true illusion and an illusory capacity of the landscape as social construction, intervening and staging to reinterpret human and nature relationships.
