Apocalypse Manifesto, 2018
It’s already happening! Why even bother? We like to think we own the control within the small
anthropocentric world we thought we’d created. The Apocalypse is not going to happen at the press of a button. It builds upon every person who says ‘I’m not gonna live long enough to see it happen.’ But what if we force you to see? We’ll keep you healthy, we’ll give you food and entertain you. All of these just so you could for a couple of seconds see how it ended up being.
A satire addressing our approach when it comes to global warming and climate change. As we became immune seeing the same images, deforestation, oceans full of plastic, polar ice caps melting, that postpone the environmental crisis that we ‘happen’ to be in.
