The ruin casts us forward in time; it predicts a future in which our present will slump into similar disrepair or fall victim to some unforeseen calamity. The ruin, despite its state of decay, somehow outlives us. And the cultural gaze that we turn on ruins is a way of loosening ourselves from the grip of punctual chronologies, setting ourselves adrift in time. – Brian Dillon
Everything After Is Measured By Now explores an ambiguous line between the present and future in order to reflect on contemporary society’s relation to collapse. Eschewing straightforward narrative, the piece follows separate threads that revolve around this ambiguity in an attempt to question whether societal collapse is a potential event in some near future, or an event society is already situated within.
