As environments have changed over the long span of geological time so have species developed in ecosystems into an ever-increasing number of specialisations.
Throughout the Earth’s history this process has been sometimes slow and gradual, sometimes sudden.
However, increasingly rapid ecological changes at the end of the Holocene precipitated a series of profound transformations in many animal species.
These climatic and biological changes ushered in the period referred to as the Plasticene Epoch.
Creatures of the Plasticene Epoch: An (Un)natural History presents a museum of natural history from a fictive future where animal species have been transformed by technology and where a bio-mechanical evolution has been played out.
