"...from 1) the controlled and continous suction of Earth in a
suspicious urine-like liquid;
2) through a represented but not transparent
transformation process: oil into gold; and finally 3) as a
manifestation/realization as a pure culinary delight; golden
french fries arranged to create a word 'ANARCHY' on a
white porcelain plate, followed by a short expression:
Eating the fruit of this process can be understood as a
modest ceremony of a constant self-destruction and we
see only the set-up - already without human."
Accepting the fact that now the Earth globe itself is nearly no more an undiscovered place and there is nearly no more any untouched squaremeters left or not-owned by humans - the image of our planet became as small as the globe-lamp in a grown-up child's room. The age of running out of fossil fuels and with the acceptance of the fact that how seriously do we waste and ruin this globe the definition of anthropocene seems to be needed to born - to create the context to examine (again) ourselves and look into mirror. I use the concept of „worldling” in an opposite/negative way – this is only a feedback loop without positive envision. A mirror only with the imprisoned reflection. It can be called dystopia – with a huge question-mark on the imagined viewer itself. It would be a memento in a language what only the represented wold itself can understand.
Hydrogelosys can be melt into the 'centrally-organized commune making use of tools and objects made from watermelon sugar'. In this case the Earth itself functions as an exploited creature imprisoned to fluid by men to create a costly substance – like gold-making but with crude and dirty oil. It can be also translated as a memorial of fuel-based & automatized system that used to operate secretly behind the scenes.
