ENTROPIC COSMOS II — LA PULAKA
The works are based on renderings of the crop Pulaka, Cyrtosperma Merkusii, which primarily is grown at the island Tuvalu in the Pacific Ocean. Tuvalu is the earth’s first sovereign nation faced to sink due to global-warming related flooding. The Pulaka is grown in pits, which are kept by families through generations. The ownership and cultivation are important parts of family identity as well as an important culinary source rich on carbohydrates. The cultivation of Pulaka is threatened by the rising sea levels caused by global warming as the plant does not thrive in the salt water which seeps into the pits.
