In the spirit of mail art, Webb-Ellis will exchange letters via post with 5 people (another artist, a poet, a philosopher, a scientist, and a group of teenagers) around the themes of language, the body, our present moment and possible futures - from a posthuman and deep time perspective. The question of geological nuclear waste disposal and how humans might communicate its presence to future beings up to 100,000 years in the future, is a starting point. The printed publication will be made up of these responses and mailed out to various networks of artists, academics, scientists, and the public.Image: Webb-Ellis, For The First Baby Born in Space (film still), 2019.
