On the exposition structure
The visual and navigational concept for this exposition, following the dark on a Moebius-like path of multiple co-interdependent pages in no consecutive order, accounts for the non-linear and horizontal becomings in this artistic evolution of thoughts.
This exposition was initially developed and performed as "Mörk Materia / Dark Matter(s)" and has been adapted to the contexts it has been performed in. Each page represents a transcripted and translated chapter from the original performance script, contextualised to fit the exposition mode of the Research Catalogue format.
The original performances were conducted using speech synthesis tools, adding a post- or even in-human level to the notion of co-becoming with plants. The script has been translated from Swedish to English; however the original voicing in Swedish is included for each chapter/page.
