As so often I’ve been thinking about robots, artificial intelligence and what will become of us humans in the future while creating this piece. Will we just endlessly keep consuming? Will robots take over human reproduction because all that is left is some greedy, organic matter? And why would they do it? Because we created them in our best image – the one that is caring, thoughtful and supportive? I will give it some more thought…
Scorched-earth tactics are a military strategy that destroys all resources that might be useful to the advancing enemy. Why we are destroying our planet with global warming without an enemy in sight is beyond me… Perhaps it is the enemy inside us that drives us? The enemy that is called: greed or fear or simply dumb-ass!
I am an artist, not a writer, but thought about the first line of a dystopian novel: People embraced the first heatwave in the summer of 2018.
As I said, I am not a writer, but I would start a piece of apocalyptic fiction in the here and now – the nightmare is already in full swing.
