Thirteen animations inspired by exotic ways to end life on Earth or even the Universe itself. All the animations resonate directly with the singularity theme of the exhibition, mathematically, physically, technologically or even in exotic (like the simulation hypothesis) and religious apocalyptic ways. This is singularity in its eschatological manifestation as viewed by a distant observer who instead of being a fatalist, he is too absorbed into the magic realism of possible futures.
Though the theme is an apocalyptic one, the animations are not violent or scary. Instead the intention is to create a relaxing, hypnotizing feeling of immersion into surreal, uncanny, distant and dreamy worlds of emptiness.
