Poetry, animation, wall-paper
Animation (02.30 min)

Animation: a poem is read out by a virtual animated version of the artist. A futuristic poem on a doomed ecosystem: “Are we melting or are we crying?”.The poem touches upon the fragility of the human “filterless” skin. Our physical bodies aren’t resilient enough for external threats such as the current environmental crisis and the COVID pandemic. The virtual poet talking in-animate, forms speculation, about a post-human virtual existence. But how resilient are our virtual bodies in the digital realm really? Will a virtual migration succeed us to thrive there? Can we reach intimacy and collaborate with all potential viruses, glitches and security threats living ‘out there’??

“Your world is not a funfair, baby. Your world is unfair. Your world is on fire!” —Excerpt from poem
