In 2010, artist and biologist Brandon Ballengée saw firsthand the largest environmental disaster in United States history—the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Within this book are his visual responses to the tragedy; locked in jars, suspended in alcohol, posed in petri dishes, Ballengée’s forms tell stories of species altered and obliterated. His prints, sculptures, and field projects are a narrative of the human impact in the recently-christened “Anthropocene Era.” By implicating us in their creation, the projects also inspire us to learn more about the ecology of these complex, often fragile ecosystems and the animals living there.
