Pillow title: Anthropocene

Anthropocene – the proposed geological name for the era when human activity started to impact significantly on the

Earth’s ecosystem.

Anthropocentrism – the belief that human beings are the central or most significant species on the planet. I have come

across the English philosopher Mary Midgely and I would choose to read her book Gaia the Next Big Idea on this pillow.

Planet Blue – the new planet in the book The Stone Gods by Jeanette Winterson. This book is my original inspiration.







This exhibition and pillow have led to further work based on photoshopped drawings of the pillow which I am working on

as drawings with a view to using them as a starting point for further sculpture.
