Anthropocene River

Roslyn Taplin (Adjunct Professor, University of New South Wales Art & Design, Sydney, Australia)


Anthropocene River, a short digital video created by Roslyn Taplin, is a response to the impacts of the Anthropocene, including climate change on the landscape of Scotland’s post-industrial Abhainn Chluaidh, or River Clyde. Taplin explores human nature entanglements through the lenses of the riverscape, science and history.



Roslyn Taplin is an environmental artist and scientist who works at both St Peters, Sydney, Australia and Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Scotland. Her creative outputs include drawing, digital photography, video and installation. In many of her works, she explores the use of glyph or textual information in speeches and documents about the environment and climate change. Her qualifications include both a PhD focusing on the use of science in environmental policymaking and a Doctor of Visual Art (Queensland College of Art).

She is a Visiting Scholar at University of Strathclyde and an Adjunct Professor of Environmental Art at University of New South Wales (UNSW) Art & Design where she previously undertook Master’s studies. Ros’s art research focus is on environment, sustainability and climate change. This flows from her longerterm environmental research career. She has held academic positions at UNSW Sydney, Bond University and Macquarie University, Australia.
