The Age of Earthquakes

Shumon Basar, Douglas Coupland, 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. A unique collaboration between three people, 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.
