geologic time viewer
"The Geologic Time Viewer is an interactive graphic design. It offers a contemporary interpretation of the Geological Society of America's 1989 Geologic Time Scale.

Unlike the official Geologic Time Scale—our Viewer does not end with the present as culmination. Instead, we locate the present as the middle of geologic time. Neither beginning nor end, the present is where geologic and human forces are in the midst of unfolding and enfolding. The right represents time past, the left, how geologic time has been enculturated by human design in the present.

Through a window cut in the middle of a geologic time scale, users view their surroundings as the present geologic era--a qualitatively new era called the Anthropocene. Unlike all geologic strata that came before, the Anthropocene’s strata will include a distinct layer of sediment containing elements unique because of their human design (ie nuclear fallout and plastic)."
