Planetary Thermodynamics – Energy Justice

posted in: works | 0

 In this work I aim to depict the history of a utopia that has never happened. More importantly though, it may happen. The initial stimulus’s been personal experience – an effort to create a temporary autonomous zone in a particular garden colony in Brno, Czechia. This docufiction story starts where my personal experience ends. The impossibility or inability to transform a slice of space-time outside of Fukuyama’s end of history becomes the subject of speculative archaeology research. I apply its methods to discover current state of affairs from the viewpoint of the future status quo.
Through the spatial-visual arrangement of objects I intend to retell the story of a new future. It is built on the synergic interconnection of technological and natural sources and finally rejects and overcomes the anthropocentric dichotomy nature-culture. It perceives silicon and carbon chips and semiconductors in their mineral substantiality as augmented natural entities. The fauna and the flora have been re-acknowledged with the status of autonomous intelligent actors. The social, economic and political order of human relationships is built on a new distribution of material and symbolic being. This is derived directly from energy outputs and inputs calculated in Watts and Joules, which completely cancelled racial, gender, national, status and any other so far practised ways of social and generic segregation and exploitation.
The work is an outcome of my long-term interest in the relationship of man, nature and technology in its multiple present and possible future positions.
