One Planet One Future

One Planet One Future is the name of Anne de Carbuccia’s ongoing collection of photographs documenting her on-site installations: the Time Shrines.

The TimeShrines are created and staged by Anne in symbolically significant environments, and her photographs become the permanent record of the temporary installation. 

TimeShrines make use of ‘Vanitas' art, a tradition that dates back to the sixteenth century, which featured the skull as a symbol of vanity to represent the futility of earthly life and the transient nature of worldly pursuits. 

Next to the vanity in the TimeShrine is the hourglass, to remind us that time is fleeting and that the sand in the hourglass is running out.

To complete the TimeShrine Anne de Carbuccia incorporates organic elements and found objects, each carefully chosen for its symbolic meaning.

“The vanity, the skull is not a symbol of death but a reminder that we are all mortal and should spend the precious time we have on the planet on positive and constructive accomplishments. There is no death in the vanity, just choice. You look at the vanity and you stop wasting your time. It’s one of the most positive symbols ever created.”

While the TimeShrines are the main focus of the image, they are built as much for what surrounds them as for themselves. Each composed image offers a tableau of our time. The startling appearance of shrines in these images invites us to reflect on where we come from, who we are, and what we want for the future—our one and only future.

“TimeShrines speak to our origins, our beliefs, and what we cherish. They connect the past to the present, and what was to what is to come”

Exhibitions

One Planet One Future exhibitions are organised around the world and are free of charge.  The Time Shrine Foundation is a nonprofit organisation established to support the creation of the artwork and aid the effort to raise awareness of environmental preservation and climate change.
