MARS ABSTRACTIONS_SPECULATIVE SERIES // 2019
 

Humankind's near future passes via Mars. New civilisations there question us here. Mars Abstractions is a playful and innocent approach by PETERMFRIESS around the colours, shapes and surface qualities of our future environmet(s) and habitat(s). All what we will be accomplishing there is in first instance an adapted copy or snapshot of our behaviour on Earth. We could evidently contemplate of acting differently...

Mars Abstractions also tries to create a better understanding for the engagement and responsiveness of people and organisations for new frontiers and conflict-inviting life circumstances, exploring how art may serve as a way for resolution.

Conflict may not be understood as a negative force as long as it can provide the necessary tensions for developing new solutions instead of a business-as-usual.
