“Humanity must find viable living spaces beyond Earth in the next 100 years.” Stephen Hawking 2017. Or perhaps we could live in giant domes on Earth?
A closed system is seen as an illustration of the untamed land. This closed environment is invested in the strangeness of real. An almost alternate reality coinciding with social anxiety, political populism and a loss of faith in facts.
In a time of environmental anxiety a desire to connect with nature is key to our understanding of this uncertainty. Spaceship Earth is an ongoing series that aims to explore our innate desire to connect with nature also known as “Biophillia” popularised by Edward O. Wilson. The series also seeks to understand human interactions with closed systems and how we respond to these sensory experiences. An almost hyper-reality.
