The Metabolic Rift: The Excrements of Capitalism
4K video, 15 minutes 3 seconds

Collaborating with Tomáš Uhnák and employing the medium of a short, experimental, documentary video I attempted to introduced ecological themes linked to the term Metabolic Rift to a broad spectrum of visitors of artistic institutions. We focused primarily on the circulation of nutrients within our globalised world. More than half the world’s population lives in the urban landscape of cities. As a result, the absolute majority of nutrients necessary for the production of food does not go back to agricultural land from the urban centres, instead ending up on waste dumps or being taken by rivers into the world’s seas and oceans.
