The uncanny landscapes of science fiction seem remote from the world we inhabit. Yet as the climate changes—environmentally, culturally, and politically—we find ourselves in a zone that is all too real. My work imagines what we will encounter: visions, illusions, and distortions that may lead to our own mutation and eventual evolution.
