AFTER THE END
We are not in the world, we become with the world; we become by contemplating it. Everything is vision, becoming. We become universes. Becoming animal, plant, molecular, becoming zero.
Deleuze G. and Guattari F. What is Philosophy? London, Verso (1994, p.169)
Mare Tranquilitatis (Sea of Tranquility) is a lunar mare located in the Moon's Tranquillitatis basin, just southwest of Mare Crisium.
The lunar mare are large, dark, basaltic plains on Earth's Moon, formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. They were named 'mare'
–Latin for 'seas', by early astronomers who mistook them for actual seas.
After the End (Mare Tranquillitatis) reflects on the relations between society, technology and nature and the dystopian scenarios that largely surround them today. It attempts, at the same time, to suggest the notion of observation and the importance of senses, especially vision, as a means of reinventing ourselves and our futures within the world.
After the End Mare Tranquillitatis and Mare Crisium are both parts of the research for the same work titled After the End. They interconnect and complement each other but they can also be considered separately.
