Possibility we are poisoned
3 channel audio-video installation
collaboration on 3D and animation: Kuba Matuszczak

The recurring phrase in di Prima’s poem, Possibly we are... is the starting point for the speculative narrative about the future, in which fictional seeds that awaken after years of sleep begin to grow, thus affecting the habitats that surround them. The story contains fragments from the poems of Diane di Prima, Helene Cixous, Marina Tsvetaeva, Patrícia Rehder Galvão, Sylvia Plath and Maria Sabina, to name but a few. The fictitious seeds, which resemble ancient fossils or the remains of extraterrestrial forms, are an indirect allusion to plant organisms that produce “dormant seeds” under the regime of a changing climate. Dormancy is an evolutionary acquired trait of some plants that enables them to survive under adverse conditions and as such is important for the propagation of new species and the successful spread of existing ones. Possibility we are poisoned is therefore linked to a broader theme of a posthuman future in which hitherto unknown transformations of matter may take place.
