A selection from The Era of Hopeful Monsters: Caleb Churchill
The Era of Hopeful Monsters takes a critical an empathetic look at how we envision our collective identity in relationship to our environment, whether it is the constructed, inorganic urban, the vast expanses of our few remaining wild spaces or, as is most often the case, somewhere in between, a geography that is a mix of concrete and wildflowers. This body of work finds the beauty, the humor and the bittersweet in our contemporary environment, taking in each one for what it is and what it says about our species.
