Valerian Blos — Not in Time, B: Starving Prediction

Kinetic — Winter 2012

How will the future look like? In search of a general prediction, the human mind reaches the limits of his capacity: Too much variables and too much random events can happen which impacts the course of history. But the future is not unclear at all! Its for sure that in exact this moment, causes happens that will affect future generations. And in this context, I want to let the viewer think about our relation to time, future and their presently. For this ambition, I provide two experiments to draw conclusions for an unpredictable future:

B: Starving Prediction
The Agar-Agar nutrient medium offers a valid ground for future prediction: even when mankind should disappear from earth, resistant life-forms like bacteria will outlast human being. By providing the future breeding grounds, you can draw your own prophecy by using nutrient solution - when a few days have passed, you can verify its truth.
