    Postfossil [ soft and tender extinction series ]

    Postfossil series are part of a body of work and research on the idea of extinction and the binomial materiality and immateriality. Here, through the two-dimensional impression of an image, which refers to a natural or artificial fossil, something previously characterized by its matter and three-dimension. The author questions in relation with the Anthropocene, the human being’s immersion in a virtual environment far from the physical reality of our bodies and the natural space around us, inhabiting countless places but, often without existing emotionally or materially in any one. Tactility and contact are also questioned. Many of our memories are tattooed on the skin through touch and tactile dialogue, creating an archeology of the body. This, tangible experience than reality people … Where does it come from, what will it turn into? When does it become meat? When it becomes sensitive to feelings, connected with pleasure, emotions, memories… how it becomes scar and then memory again. Different from the archive, from a cold and fossilized emotion in a digital environment. In this archeology of the body, it is worth mentioning that due to tactility, there is a moment of synchronization of all languages and almost all means ever invented by man (Santaella), which makes us question what can be touched and how it can be touched. So, can the tactile illiteracy of a cold screen or fingerprint become touch sensitive? Emotion, affection and dancing like animated atoms, perhaps in a place without memory, without past, eternal, until the electricity disappears. These images dialogue with each other, between the flirtation and purgatory of a kairos vs chronos, of matter vs non-matter, between gender and organs, between natural space and the human body and their symbiotic co-relations. Shell…, snake… bodies fossilized in the coldness of illuminated images as if they were liquid crystals, they remind us of our own bodies that one day will also be fossils. Here, reference to female/male organs in contrast with the image of a sex toy that could be a ray/manta, plant…, however a silicone tongue controlled by wifi, maximum exponent of biomimicry and transhuman attempt of the pleasure principle, prosthesis is also here printed, fossilized, archived as an essay for an idea of #digitalimmorality.
