This show can be seen as a cube. Not a very large one. Part of it is immersed under the crust of earth, beneath the ocean’s floor; the other part is filled with water of extreme cold. And there is a chunk of a fat cable – the one connecting the North Americans and Europeans attached to their shiny screens via the so-called Internet. It is a cube of transactions. Flows of information run through the guts of the cable, which is surrounded and clothed with extremophiles. High-resolution images of the surfaces of celestial bodies move side by side with cat videos in the traffic of zeros and ones. Or these surfaces are actually close-ups of bacteria bodies? Inversions are inevitable in transactions. Intraterrestrials know it better than anyone else – their quiet life in the cracks of rocks beneath the floor of the ocean has been recently disturbed by the nosy scientists. They are too now put in transactions – inversed extraterrestrials that have not meant to be discovered, captured and became profile pictures. Notions of life, and space, and survival redefined. Again.

Oh, and there’s plastic. Loads of it.
