THE PROJECT IS MADE WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE MINISTRY OF CULTURE OF TAIWAN.
Moon Salt is a collaborative time machine that borrows lunar orbits to arrive in Chthulucene, a speculative future of sympoiesis. The collective thinking process through the project aims to compose new mythologies to tell the stories of holobionts and disrupted boundaries between living entities, re-imagining kin-making beyond the entanglement of matter and organisms. What will be the new orders for worlding and evolution when the ethics that govern species, reproduction, family and society are archaic and displaced, and God is no longer a capitalist? Moon Salt may respond to these questions while proposing what the Lunarpunk could be…
In collaboration with Moss Piglets, Moon Salt is a live exhibition resulting from a three-day workshop with themes ranging from micropia and cryptobiosis, yesterdays and tomorrows, and new senses and consciousness at the edge of the Anthropocene.
Note: The terms Chthulucene, sympoiesis and kin-making are sourced from Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene by Donna J. Haraway.
