Fossil Echoes by Kat Austen draws together two of the artist’s works that focus on the consequences of human addiction to fossil fuels. On one side, This Land is Not Mine about brown coal mining and its effect on landscape and culture. On the other, Stranger to the Trees about how microplastics created from oil interact with trees.
This bi-lingual (German / English) publication has a Foreword by artist and curator Dominika Kluszczyk with translation by Vanessa Kreitlow.
The book is available as a limited edition hard copy and as a PDF under a CC-BY-SA 4.0 license.
