Dark Mountain: Issue 20, Abyss
Dark Mountain Project, Issue 20 Abyss is out now and includes the work Four Point Four Acres from The Last Stand.
"Dark Mountain: Issue 20 – ABYSS delves deep into civilization’s plunder of Earth. This all-colour strikingly illustrated issue reveals the hidden assault behind our technocratic lifestyle: on mountains, on trees, water, creatures and human beings, as extractivism’s insatiable drive for natural resources fuels a seemingly endless expansion in consumption....Inspired by the CODEX Foundation’s project EXTRACTION: Art on the Edge of the Abyss, Dark Mountain’s 20th issue plumbs the depths of the pit we have dug in order to see how deep we have gone, and where we might go from here."
