Materiality changes – all the time and we can not do anything about it.
The whole materialities are in a constant change.
Human influence changes this constant change of materiality.
No matter how much time passes – nothing will ever be gone.
These five materialities should be analyzed closer in this DAV.
The human body changes all the time – it gets older and after a while the organs stop working and it is called dead. After time it can turn into ground or - including the human influence - it can turn into ash and smog.
The substance changes and we can change the substance,
but we will never get rid of it.
The thick black line represents the human influence during the process of change of the different materialities.
Some materialities cross the black influence-line:
for example WOOD-> if we burn it, it turns into ash and smog. If we don’t, it turns into ground naturally.
Some materialities – like SNOW or STONE cross the human-influence-line, but they are cutted, which represents the possibility for a human influence, but the change might and will also happen without it. ( Snow -> Water -> Steam )
PLASTIC is chosen the represent to „unnatural“ materialities. It crosses the human-influence-line many times, which shows that we can use and change it, but will never get rid o fit again.
After 450 years a plasticbottle turns into ground again. With human influence it can turn into ash and smog.
Nothing is ever gone. Nothing is ever lost. No matter how much time passes.
