Stenen: op eigen risico

collage, series

Departing from damaged landscapes: cities destroyed by erratic weather, their air flaming with pollutants, ecosystems washed by toxic petrochemicals, Stenen: op eigen risico (Stones: at own risk) speculates a distant future, in which artefacts of our times are studied. “It depends on the time horizon that you’re looking at. If we’re looking at now, when people of the Gulf have to eat and make a living, this is a total disaster. If you value what’s happening in the next twenty, thirty, one hundred years, there’s something to be concerned about. But, if you’re talking about a two million year time horizon in the Gulf, sure, everything is going to be fine eventually.” Amy Lesen about the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster.
