Catastrophe is not something that either threatens to happen in the close future or has already happened in the past – rather, we are experiencing it right now. How long can the catastrophe exist without any new stimuli? What happens when no one comes up with something surprising?
The apocalyptic video‐essay about the fragility and collapse of systems portrays the omnipresence of catastrophe as a specific kind of permanent and subconscious anxiety of all mankind. The series of question marks about human beings is based on the commentary and visualisation of OTCA metapixel automat (see Outer Totalistic Cellular Automaton Meta‐Pixel; author Brice Due), which shows us the precise path of the general decline of life.
