Mark Dorf: HOST
HOST navigates the ways in which we interact with our landscape through our growth as a human race. We are constantly expanding our presence on this planet, and consequently reducing our natural landscape of which we are forever dependent upon for our physical materials for further development. This creates a very unique relationship between man and its natural surroundings - we are simultaneously destroying our environment that creates the materials that we need to further sustain our expansion, and jointly we are creating synthetic reproductions of that environment to farm those same elements for our consumption. Through this interruption we are destroying our original womb and losing our original referent and instead manipulating those original elements to create our own genetic makeup for our constructed worlds. Creating busy cities of commerce typically sings of fortitude and strength, when in fact we are slowly creating our own swan song. Through the creation of the urban landscape, new norms arise – no longer do we worry about survival and intelligent exploration, we now obsess over productivity and growth. This preoccupation with ideals and urban normalcy is ultimately destructive as we forget what is actually sustaining us in the first place.
We are no longer in a state of growth; we are in a state of excess. We no longer know how we can possibly use up all these accumulated things; we no longer even know what they are for.Jean Baudrillard, Looking Back on the End of the World, 1986 (via nickkahler)
