WE’RE ALL SQUATTERS NOW

We’re all squatters now. Every human is out of place on the surface of the earth. This planet wants us off and we want to go.

OUT OF PLACE: IN OUR BODY | IN OUR COUNTRY | ON THE PLANET

Out of place in our body: We are post-humans, viewing our wet sausage shells from the outside.
Out of place in our country: We are tourists at home; lost, without a map of our own house.
Out of place on the planet: We are cut off from terrestrial cues, mediated culture speeds us through the day.

Mother Earth is a Dead Duck. The best thing I can think of doing is making Canard D’Orange.
Mother Earth is Mother Goose. Its nice to believe in when your a kid, but adults will whisper to you ‘Business Cycles Not Water Cycles’.
Mother Earth AND God are dead. This is more bad news for the houses of worship. Its a mixed bag for the state. Things are looking up for business.

We can overconsume our way into outerspace. Spacejunk shows us that we can throw things “away”. Maybe space is “away”.

We don’t belong here. We are no longer from here. This planet wants us off and we want to go.

    Don’t forget that within our own atmosphere there is the provisional plastic island emerging in the N. Pacific gyre. Terra incognita made of out-of-place plastic artifacts. Dark irony in a swirling vortex, consumer cast aways are re-cycled. Don’t waste the ultimate “get away!”
