EcologyNOW challenges the position of humans at the top of the classic evolution chain.

Schilderman has created sculptures and drawings to ask visitors to consider whether humans are the most important species on earth today. Sculptures pair human forensic identifiers with animals and animal drawings depict Utopian scenes across Brazil.

It is a Sci/Art collaboration between the University of Birmingham, the Lapworth Museum of Geology and the artist.
