Inspired by elusive (non)lifeforms and their abilities to shapeshift we composed our work around texts and ideas of Reza Negarestani, Clark Ashton Smith, Paul B. Preciado, Octavia E. Butler, Ben Woodard & Thomas Ligotti.

With a particular interest in the ecology of the nonhuman, we propose a work that explores and studies shapeless masses, slippery sludges and slime structures. As these are often associated with decomposition, mere traces of residues, trails of verminous lifeforms, they actually provided the template for all organic beings and all eventual thought on the Planet Earth. Also, humanity’s gradual ascent comes from clustered pools of ooze – globs of swarming proto-life.
