Swirling Vortex of Entropy

Markus von Platen

29.08.2014 - 19.09.2014


Half a year ago I visited the Ujung Kulon National Park, a vigorous jungle encompassing a vast area of the westernmost tip of Java. I had since long a strong desire to experience the nature at its most extreme conditions, meeting this enclosed randomness of noise and condensed temperature, somehow felt similar to the energy and scale of the big city, the humid perplexity of Jakarta and the future-industrial urbanity of Sao Paulo, yet something in the between. As an abstraction I imagined the untamed character of the jungle in relation to time, history, politics, finance - The parallel division between rising economies in Asia and the slow decay of Western dominance. The jungle as a hermetic Genesis, a time capsule, threatening and rough in all its biological magnificence.
