Following Donna Herraway, the project uses the latest machine learning models to imagine future modes of cross-species coexistence in the ruins of the Anthropocene.
The hybrid creature, the Chimera, serves as a model and starting point for dreaming up complex relationships in the ecological niches that will emerge in the wake of climate catastrophe, with or without humans.
The machine dreams for the artist as the political, cultural and technical contexts seem to become too complex and the models transform into omniscient, god-like entities.
Multi-channel video installation in which each video covers a sphere of the earth.
Rock that reaches the earth's surface is exposed to the forces of the atmosphere and the biosphere. This creates a new habitat in which microorganisms settle, which over very long periods of time create the basis for more complex animal and plant life forms - the pedosphere. Anthropogenic action massively interferes with this process and destroys a delicate system. At the same time, however, it creates bending conditions for biological activists that respond to our interventions - eco-punks in the truest sense of the word - that will adapt, adjust to us - the inhabitants of the Capitalocene - and in the worst case for us, turn against us.
"GAN Chimera - Pedosphere" imagines the emergence of new life in the ruins of anthropogenic soil exploitation as a kind of blueprint for cross-species coexistence in the compost of capitalism.
