Neologicon Vol I.
The Neologicon Vol I. anthropocenic alterations is a video-installation which functions as a temporary visual presentation of the glossary known as The Neologicon. From then on The Neologicon’s content is bound to erupt in future works. Formally the video draws upon and reworks the different ways the climate crisis and technological development are mediated via screens both by experts and amateurs.
The Neologicon is a glossary of repurposed words and new terms engineered to explore the effects of species-level historical shifts on language and thought. Oscillating between a proposal for a time to come and a future-reality sent back in time piece-by-piece, The Neologicon is a dictionary for a speculative tomorrow undermining the stability of ideas and blurring the boundaries between concept and metaphor. The process of word-making does not simply mimic what it tries to describe but collapses into it resurfacing in symbols, diagrams and speculative maps.
