Towards Geothermal Heat 1-3

Pencil on paper
63 x 44 cm

In Praise of Boredom, Rauma Triennale, Rauma, Finland

The drawings, which depict vertical interior spaces dug underground, are lighthearted design experiments that stemmed from ideas of acute raw material shortages halting the production of concrete, bricks and steel beams. Sidestepping the current phenomenon of ‘doomsday prepping’, the emergency preparation culture that prepares for the collapse of major Western societies in the near future, the series imagines the ultimate form of future luxury to be the ability to dig into the warmth of the deep Earth.
