The offspring of the Anthropocene represents this new generation of children as well as an agonizing outcry for help; the outcry of a wounded planet and (unknowingly) of the children who are born into it. Unaware that not so long ago the planet used to be different, the children of the Anthropocene play and live in an apocalyptic legacy, in a world of waste,food scarcity,climate change refugees, polluted waters,floods and almost non-existing trees or birds. Unknowingly as well they represent the modern estranged relation between the human beings and nature, which has already reached the point of no return.
