ANTHROPOCORALLIUS is a sculptural fiction, where objects are the physical means to convey a narrative:
“ Let’s suppose that in the oceans and seas, instead of finding salty minerals in the water, we are now able to find sucrose. This small change will convey drastic consequences to sensitive Ecosystems, their dynamics, and all beings. Many life forms won’t bear the transition, some will adapt and new ones will emerge.ANTHROPOCORALLIUS has taken advantage of the ´sugarization´ of the aquatic realm to thrive. It blends man-made refuse and debris to compose its internal skeleton. This life form relies exclusively on a glucose diet to satisfy its primal needs and be alive, It blends man-made refuse and debris to compose its internal.”
The objects portrait a novel species, an offspring of humankind´s behavior. ANTHROPOCORALLIUS aims to inquire about the relationships that maintain the fragile sustainability of ecosystems. It attempts to make visible the unsustainable practices of human consumerism that have been affecting, both the ecosystems and their individuals. For example, the warming of the oceans as a consequence of the excess use of fossil fuels; and the prevalence of health issues as a consequence of the excess consumption of processed foods. Understanding the impact of sugar in a system such as a diabetic body – like mine can be taken as a model to understand the impact of fossil fuels in the aquatic realm.
