Wax Worm

The world of technology is starting to become more natural to us than living forms. The sculptures are created from recycled cables and in closer look, are as much below as above the ground. Nature has the ability to adapt to various adverse conditions; even those that are caused by human intervention. Wax Worm take on a dystopian role by associating ‘human intervention’ with contemporary extractivism, turning humans into slaves. According to Paul B. Preciado, bodies of addicts and pharmacoporno workers occupy the interior of closed circuits that link the drug industry to the sex industry and the penal-industrial complex. “More than a ghetto, it should be thought of as a spatiotemporal wormhole inside contemporary democratic societies.”
