The Age of Earthquakes
A Guide to the Extreme Present
Welcome to The Age of Earthquakes - a unique artistic and literary collaboration between Douglas Coupland, Shumon Basar and Hans Ulrich Obrist
Human experience - love, money, belief, progress, politics, time - doesn't look or feel the way it used to. Wonder why? Because you are the last generation that will die.
Combining quick hits of images and ideas, stark statistics and scary slogans, The Age of Earthquakes tours the world that's left behind as the world we knew melts away. A book of perceptions set in our 'extreme present', it's a new history of the world, a portrait of our digital era in a relentlessly paper form. Because we haven't just changed our brains these past few years. We've changed the structure of the planet.
