  Jason Benedek

Particulate matter and detritus, plastics reaching the furthest zones of the planet. Post-organic forms; forced into being in suffering. A limit, a border where the others, the technological and organic, struggle and dance. There is no more untouchable life. Lines of flight, what movement can become, scratching the skin of the other. Science of the abyss. Interference: we have visited the farthest depths and left our fast food wrappers there.
