TROPHY OF A SYNTHETIC AGE
This vase materialises a dialogue between the human species and the world we live in.
We are living on a damaged planet facing an environmental crisis with the continuous immense extinction of biodiversity. Toxicity is becoming our new nature.
Feeling that our age is in-between a transition of Holocene era and Synthetic age. Our relation with nature is changing. Suddenly we can engineer nature. And it seems that it’s the only thing that can save us.
Natural evolution is too slow for the fast times we have created. But we can engineer faster evolution to keep many species alive, or even better, we can create A new.
Are we positioning ourselves into a role of god? The god is dead.
