“The Earth spins before an uncontrolled radiant heater, the sun, whose output is by no means constant”
From the planetary to the translocal, we find ourselves in a constant flow of transmutation, which puts us in an unpredictable position inside a speculative zeitgeist, in which, as Suhail Malik proposes, the “present is built by the future”.
Provided a small flow of electricity, matter (saltpetre, copper and water) is out of control here, escaping prediction. Unpredictable Atlas suggests a new, uncontrollable territory by providing segments of it, honoring a classic Berliner “Altbau” space that was built in the same time as when the rush of the Chilean saltpeter era occured.
