Micromachina was created as a social comment on humans' destructive and capitalist drive to control our planet. Money, profits and economic growth take precedence over environment, habitats and entire species. The self destructive consumption of natural resources is showing no signs of slowing down. The first exhibition helped to create a worldwide talking point on the works and hopefully the message.
Micromachina Aqua takes this inspiration to the high seas, highlighting the damage we are causing to an often unseen, large percentage of our planet. The destruction caused by overfishing, oil spills and now gas exploration are causing irreversible damage to these fragile underwater ecosytems. If the exhibition encourages the viewer to think about the future of other species, then the art is doing its job.
