This selection of 100 images was influenced by four years of interviews with leading scientists, philosophers, anthropologists, and artists about the contradictions that characterize contemporary civilizations. Thus the book engages with some of the most profound questions of the human experience.

Also includes field note essays by Joel Weinberg, Rafael Nunez, Brian L. Wardle and Karl Berggren, and the EchoStar Company. Presents a diversity of photographic technologies, from surveillance shots taken by a drone to close-ups of the Ebola virus captured by an electron micrograph.
