Look all over.
Extract and alter the natural elements that surround you in the constructed reality.
Eat some MAGMA.
Nature (primal / modern / post nature) is always imbued with mystery.
Nature mutates herself and is being mutated. She is the Queen and the Underdog.
It is about basal instincts and existence.
Some animals of the now exist already for millions of years.
Ancient is alive. Ancient is more cyborg than cyborg.
200 million years old animals will survive the post nature.
New ways of life. New ways of die.
It is about breathing. Eat and smell and touch.
I will look into 4 Fs: my Flesh, my Food, Fauna and Flora.
Learning about less imagined versions of the surrounding world.
Embody the natural, emotional and ethical crisis.
How does it feel to have a flesh and be a vertebrate?
