If all else fails considers the intelligence found in an other in order to see the potential of different possible futures, An observational study of a desert environment finds presence of life that can survive an apocalyptic world. Large-format prints of a non-identifiable landscape site objects that appear like flotsam, as though washed ashore. The objects have a sense of buoyancy; both materially and formally they are suspended in a shiny eternal present haunted by the trace of human touch.

 

With the realization that time is ticking for humanity on Earth, this exhibition confronts present fears of a future world slowly becoming shrink wrapped in plastic – a material whose seemingly futile existence will outlast our own. The current acceleration emphasizes the suffocation inflicted upon not only ourselves but all living things.
