The Red Capsule deals with issues related to technology: Can technology save us from Armageddon? Can we control the technology? Is it our new religion?
The Red Capsule expresses a hermetic existence, everything is controlled and “artificial”, nature is absent. All the instruments shows that there are a complex world out there. The panels hide what is really happening, whether it be mechanical or digital. For example, pressing a button, it will have unintended consequences. I am concerned that life on Earth is a closed ecosystem, as in a spaceship where everything is depending on a balanced circuit
This work will be on show in my exhibition at Nordnorsk kunstsenter, opening friday 29th April.
