Animation: Welcome To The Anthropocene


An animation by Globaia showing the road systems, shipping lanes and flight paths that encircle the globe. Part of the Welcome To The Anthropocene project highlighting mankind’s impact on Earth.

A 3-minute journey through the last 250 years of our history, from the start of the Industrial Revolution to the Rio+20 Summit.

The film charts the growth of humanity into a global force on an equivalent scale to major geological processes.

There’s also a narrated version here.
