Beyond the Ends of the Earth combines organic and artificial elements to propose futuristic hybrid living forms.
The IGBP (International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme) Great Acceleration graphs, translated into digitally constructed image of mountains printed on adhesive acetate are placed on the wall. The mountains consist of six graphs in total, each of the graphs representing a different ecological phenomenon, such as ocean acidification, primary energy use and surface temperature, growing over the years of 1750-2018.
The floor part is covered with moss, where six ceramic sculptures (20-80cm) are arbitrarily standing. These sculptures symbolise futuristic living forms with plastic integrated in their bodily systems. Hybrids, which still look familiar, but not enough for one to classify them amongst known species.
