BERNARDI + PESCHARD
DESIGN HOUSE 2019
Sixth Extintion is a video art comissioned for Bernardi + Peschard's booth “Resilience” at Design House Mx 2019.
6 millions years ago human life commenced yet we have only been here a mere instant. The destiny of planet earth is and has always been an adaptation to inevitable change. The rings in the water amplify when volcanoes roar and birds scatter, fleeing from the trees. Even when we become nothing but a cataclysmic echo, the surface will be steadily reshaped by tectonic uplift, extrusions and erosions. Nature’s resilience will absorb our fossils, minerals, textures and colors, creating deeper sediments in the ancient memory of rocks. White noise deafens the river and glitches appear like lightning in the quick-silvery sky, rebooting the compositions of all previous states.
The world will go on as before.
