The starting point of this project is a lecture performance that unfolds formally into various exhibition fragments. The performance is based on an exchange of letters between two earthly lovers and a fictional character named Waad, who left for Mars in the year 2024 and now plans to reside there for the rest of her life. Modern man has plundered Earth at a pace that has outstripped the planet’s capacity to support human life. In order to survive, Earth’s population begins to move to other planets in the third decade of the century.
