Future Primitive takes on similar considerations and speculates on hybrid civilisations of trans-subjectivity where entropy paradigms manifest and devolute from ideologies of progress, going back to primitivism, ritualism and medieval superstition.
Geological rhythms and deep time introduce alternative temporal forms based upon acceleration, recurrence and retroaction. Epic history becomes quasi-religious and radically atheist as strange narratives mix, interconnecting and fantasising on past, present and future. A time travel between fantasy peasant ecological sensibility and science fiction technological awareness leads to something as yet undiscovered, or perhaps, something to be found again. Thus there is the Inside, and the Outside, which is the inside of an outside. Loop. Hallucinatory interchanges between human and its surrounding. A voyage in psychedelic caves. Dream. Silicon skins, post-human leather hanging like a hunting trophy. Wormholes. Spirulina, a super food and the oldest form of life on earth. Recurrence. Traditions and poetical metaphors of human culture that give access to future systems of collectivity. Cycle. Arrowheads forged by a medieval fletcher using a meteorite bought through Google. Glitch. And so on...
