My art practice has become a practice of thinking, as much as I can, with all of my abilities—as science writer, artist, and poet—about our situation on the planet. Climate change and extinction are always on my mind. Whatever I’m working on becomes a contribution to the wide and necessary conversation about our species and the anthropocene.
