I Cried When the Black Rhinoceros Went Extinct
A confrontation of the brutality of human-driven species extinction, its abstraction through digital media, and the idealization of conservationist rhetoric (i.e. “greenwashing”). This book specifically seeks to question the nature of extinction in a digital age when species are archived visually, materially, and genetically—and possibly provoke genuine mourning for such losses.
Composed of rhythmically laid out corrupted images of poached black rhinoceroses, enclosed in a laser cut acrylic slipcase.
