“The Decolonized Mars” is a photographic science-fiction story based on the ongoing debate about the term Anthropocene. I digitally visualize a version of one futures’ nature on Mars via photographed and AI generated images. In reference to herbaria I question the image and meaning of nature today. Terraformer and main character of my story is Erythro bacteria, which continuously transforms DNA and exists in perpetual exchange with its environment.
