The Geology of Morals

Medium: Single-channel video with sound
Duration: 02:40”


The Geology of Morals is a single-channel video which sees the Earth as a living organism that consists of mathematizable principles of matter. The title borrows from the 3rd chapter of A Thousand Plateaus by Deleuze and Guattari. The video presents objects on Earth back in question, revealing their irreducible qualities beyond our comprehension. It understands nature before the imprinting of human marks and construction of language and after. In the video, a computer-generated voice reads an excerpt from the 3rd chapter over the video footages of ices in both macroscopic and microscopic levels with a series of geometric shapes.
