AnthropoScenes #1 and #2

On Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2017, we hustled to Captain Cook's plinth and winged it!

We had noticed that the statue of explorer/colonizer Captain Cook was missing from his plinth across from the Empress Hotel in downtown Victoria. While we had a meeting to discuss what we might do there we made some investigative calls. And found out that the Captain was being returned the next day!

Here's a short video documenting AnthropoScene #2

On December 26, 2016, we took a little walk through downtown Victoria, BC. We sang "We Wish You a Merry Anthropocene (and a Happy Mass Extinction)" to the Boxing Day shoppers and had a coffee at Starbucks.

Here's a short video documenting AnthropoScene #1

We are artists/activists committed to staging an "AnthropoScene" at least once a month in a public place. We live in Victoria, BC, Canada.

AnthropoScenes are performed and embodied street art pieces aimed at raising awareness of how our way of life is creating collapse and an impending mass extinction.
