Thesis: Imagine Us. A sympoietic story of stories in art in nature.


Imagine sea level rises with 200 m due to climate change. How much land will be spared for animals such as humans to continue living? Imagine a ‘retrovolution’ by which humans develop backwards into amphibious creatures again. It could lead to a return to that past event when hominids became bipeds as they foraged in currents and surf for shell and crab fish. ‘Lucy,’ an installation of sculptures, invites visitors to rediscover those historical footsteps. Be prepared for a watery future!
