Timeline, from Designing for the Sixth Extinction, 2014
This timeline presents a long view of the ecological context for Ginsberg’s project about designing for the “sixth extinction,” a period (currently underway) in which biodiversity is rapidly diminishing because of human-triggered changes in the global ecosystem. Ginsberg envisions a future in which humans use technology to create new, hybrid forms of life as well as restoring and protecting natural species.
