Emerald Green

Carolin Koss

A three-channel video installation about a dystopian world in which obscure forces steer a global fate, nature has been rendered extinct, breathable air has become scarce, and the sun has vanished due to human error and the exploitation of natural resources. The work focuses on three people who try to survive and escape into their sub-consciousness in order to re-imagine and re-build the contaminated world they live in.
