The Mother of All: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Nature is an experience set in the future of the Anthropocene, where the heightened loss of natural environment and resource suggests that a ceremony of renewal, such as those found around Persian New Year, can b adapted to this context to address the critical need for survival and a connection back to nature- a new nature. I argue that this new nature of scarcity, perpetuated by industrialization fossil fuel reliance, and climate change, is characterized as such through artifacts of war technological advancement, and deforestation.
