Holocene is a series created from images of deposits of manganese oxide, or Dendrites. Dendrites form eye-catching patterns on rocks which look very similar to plant fossils. These formations made me think of the beauty that nature leaves as its “footprint,” and unlike humankind, one that will slowly fade with the passage of time. This current period of geological time that we are in, when people are believed by many to be bringing about the worlds sixth mass extinction, I find comfort that mother earth will continue with or without us.
