With the installation project AN ECOSYSTEM OF EXCESS, Yoldas asks the question “If life started today in our plastic debris filled oceans, what kinds of life forms would emerge out of this contemporary primordial ooze?” (Pinar Yoldas). The project imagines several organs and creatures that would be able to metabolise plastic. >> >> >>

“Inspired by the groundbreaking findings of new bacteria that burrow into pelagic plastics, An Ecosystem of Excess envisions life forms of greater complexity, life forms that can thrive in man-made extreme environments, life forms that can turn the toxic surplus of our capitalistic desire into eggs, vibrations, and joy. Starting from excessive anthropocentrism An Ecosystem of Excess reaches anthropo-de-centrism, by offering life without mankind.” (Pinar Yoldas) >>
