Designing the End

Zodiak, 2021

Photos & video: Aino Kontinen

Designing the End is a fabulation of the future, past and present. It is acceptance. A farewell. An effort to grasp something that is larger than us.

Designing the End discusses the end of our current civilisation, and the contemporary human’s obsession with their imagined death. The performance is an audiovisual montage consisting of hunches, flickers and both familiar and strange realities.

How far can we stretch the thought of designing the end of the world and our own death? How can we remain righteous and empathetic in a changing world? What kind of story will be told about us in the future?
