Issue XII of 212 Magazine features snippets from the lives of earthlings who inhabit the folds of this fragile crust. Perplexed, they question their existence and its circumstances: where are we? What universe are we in? Which cycle are we in? What age are we in? When did it start? Will we witness its end? Who we are? Who we are with? What is the explanation for all of this? This issue also takes a close look at the space entrepreneurs, eager to defy gravity and transmit our voices to other worlds, as well as the scientists, who traverse time, reaching back millions of years prior to the Anthropocene, in their search for traces of lost civilisations underground.
The cover story, ‘Homeland’, was shot by Annie Lai, and styled by Rubina Vita Marchiori.
