We live in the era, which has erased dreams about future. Hasty imagination from recent decades, which produced landing on the Moon, is privatized; it lives only in the dreams of the Silicon Valley billionaires. Instead, every one of us is very familiar with the vision of apocalypse – the environmental catastrophe is already here and only now we learn about its real extent. To a certain degree, the gloomy mood and dystopian atmosphere echoes the images of space colonisation, as the pop culture presents it – it becomes its dark twin. Measuring Earth installation examines alternative script of the expansion into space: future, where we never leave the Earth, but we hide deeper into its core following the devastation of its surface and in the search of groundwater.
