Future Friture

In the Future Friture series, sugar is used in the depiction of organisms such as the freshwater Cnidarian ‘Hydra’ living in different temperate and tropical regions, or the jellyfish ‘Turritopsis dohrnii’ living in the Mediterranean and Japanese sea. In nature these organisms have a very special lifespan where they revert into an immature state and later grows old again, in a continuous process between old and young, making them immortal. The Future Friture series touches upon humanity’s yearning for immortality – from ancient belief systems to the present, where the accelerating technological development may be capable of providing eternal life in a near future.
