A trail of regularly arranged mounds of earth. A truck is loaded in the twilight. A dense veil of mist hangs over the tops of the pine trees. Dark earth is excavated, shipped and transported away. In Dark Matter (2020) a visual friction surface is created by various situational elements, which are joined together to form a post-apocalyptic landscape.

Technology and ideology go hand in hand here and leave their mark.
