Floor is Lava is a massive series of independent installations transforming both problematic trash into art and abstraction into understanding. Floor is Lava communicates climate change, mass extinction, and the burden of future uncertainty. It is the condensed form of all anxiety on the air. The work makes the abstract phenomenon visible, gives it a concrete form to stop at. Floor is Lava continues to grow as long as the destruction by humankind continues. The artwork is controversially sympathetic, weird, and beautiful. Like a creature from another world. In this case, the “other world” is our own, and the artwork forces us to witness its inevitable destruction or act on it.
Medium: Plastic waste from strawberry fields, thrash metal, and wood from wastelands.
Finnish Cultural Foundation has supported this series.
