Design Performance: The End of the World

UK-based designer Cathrine Disney is in her performance and installation questioning the colonization of Mars by connecting it to the colonial history of the cacao tree and the only insect small enough to pollinate it, the ‘biting midge’. By offering her own bodily fluids to the insect, she aims to reposition the human from domination over nature to part of it.
