Shortlist | The New Anthropocene

The New Anthropocene | Jan Sienkiewicz

The essay The New Anthropocene is an exploration of the two forces that shape human society in the 21th century - technological progress and radical humanism. The celebration and empowerment of an individual is faced with an emergence of non-human intelligences, creation of fully immersive simulations and the resulting explosion of reality into a multifaceted hyperreality.

Through a process of optimistic speculation, those two strands are interwoven, drawing an image of a civilisation caught in a process of perpetual, dialectic modernisation. As a result of humanisation of the network and its agents and a structured simulation applied upon the human perspective, a system of mutual understanding and a recursive reference between human and nonhuman intelligences is built, shaping the spaces in a continuous process of reconstruction and rearticulation - a utopia for a humane but not only human age.

Jan Sienkiewicz is an architect and a researcher based in Copenhagen. Born April 22nd 1993 in Warsaw, he received a bachelor’s diploma, from the Warsaw University of Technology. He worked at OMA Rotterdam, before moving to Copenhagen to pursue his master’s degree. He is currently studying at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the Political Architecture: Critical Sustainability programme. He is fascinated by the changing roles of human agency, mid-century utopias, radical posthumanism and the shape of infrastructure.
