2018, work in progress
Lyuba is a reflection of the ice age and our present. By transporting us to a distant past I try to think about our human condition and realize that our existence as humans is not more significant than that of other species or our own Planet. Our influence on the Earth has actually caused a new era to begin: The Anthropocene.
I am investigating the Pleistocene, migrations and extinction of species like mammoths. The most southern place where remains of the mammoth were found was in southern Spain, very near to my family’s house. They were the same type of fossils found in Siberia, which demonstrates that 40.000 years ago mammoths had to migrate from Siberia to the South to survive. I start this research going to this place and taken the first pictures of the project.
