THE ANTHROPOCENE. A SHORT DEFINITION

"[It refers to] the period of time during which human activities have had an environmental impact on the Earth regarded as constituting a distinct geological age. Most scientists agree that humans have had a hand in warming Earth's climate since the industrial revolution—some even argue that we are living in a new geological epoch, dubbed the Anthropocene. — Nature, 12 Feb. 2004."

(Anthropocene. In: Merriam-Webster.com. Retrieved August 23, 2017, from https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Anthropocene)

The Anthropocene is not a style. It rather defines the comprehension and the concept of nature, including the human being and nature/environment.

Notably, the industrialization has implemented more inventions and further use of technology. Agriculture has spread, population and longevity have increased, and traffic has broadened. This transformation of material, energy, and balance has caused a vast intervention of the environment. By all means, the global impact and the aftermath calls us out to rethink the concept of nature and the era of the Anthropocene.
