How is it possible to live in a world where at any time in a lot of places plenty of catastrophic scenarios could happen?
14 places where catastrophic scenarios can be anticipated from all over the world are choosen and highlighted in 5 of 14 boxes with black light. These 14 places are described in the book and background information is given.
In opposition to those ‘problematic’ places poems from all over the world were gathered especially from poets who are living or coming from those areas: the poems have been cut out of polypropylene and are mounted in layers upon the 9 of 14 boxes and are highlighted with warm neon light.
All poems are printed, correctly cited and translated in the artist book.
