This week FOP was thrilled to learn that artist Rachel Sussman will be presenting her project, The Oldest Living Things in the World at TEDGlobal 2010. All living organisms in her photos have lived continuously for at least 2000+ years. We were amazed to find that several organisms included in the portfolio have been alive since the Pleistocene.
Her project is still underway and will take her to every continent, including Antartica. Rachel has pledged to keep some of the locations secret to protect the ancient life they hold. So, we look forward to seeing more of her work in the coming months and experiencing it as another means of projecting our imaginations into the Pleistocene.
