Rock Face Falling, Cave Face, and Crash
Taking influence from The Garden of Earthly Delights, Bosch 1490, Rock Face Falling, Cave Face and Crash are intended to be read left to right. This concept represents the progression from past to future.
The prints used in the triptych depict a marble quarry in Carrara Italy. The photographs represent the impact of the Great Acceleration. Representing the beginning of the Anthropic period the first image Rock Face Falling, displays the least abstract image of the triptych. This symbolizes a level of understanding and respect for the natural world displayed by the Neanderthal community. The images then become more distorted, blurred, and cropped. This progression of abstraction symbolizes the evolution of mankind. It represents the growth of mankind’s denial towards the impact on the landscape.
