Futuristic Egyptian Gothic (F.E.G.) Characters Portraits
The era of climate change involves the mutation of systems beyond 20th century anthropomorphic models. Climate change concerns material agencies that impact on biomass and energy, erased borders and microbial invention, geological and nano-graphic time, and extinction events. The current sense of depletion, decay, mutation and exhaustion calls for new definitions of life. Critical climate change is oriented toward mutations that correspond to the temporalities of terrestrial mutation. Nabuurs and Van Doorn created portraits of “new” mutants. In these works they explore the relationship between, science fiction, pop culture, Egyptian symbolism, gothic crafts, and conspiracy theories.
