Inspired by the luminous courtship of fireflies, in THE OUTLINE OF PARADISE Damm imagines cities where advertisements are no longer artificially but naturally illuminated through the luminosity of genetically modified midges. Midges are to be equipped with a luminous gene while being sound-trained to fly in letter shapes. THE OUTLINE OF PARADISE drafts a state where light pollution and its consequences for the urban biosphere appear to be remediable. >> >> >>
