ON SPECIFIC HYPEROBJECTS
BY ARTISTS, SCIENTISTS,
BRILLIANT MINDS.



Hyperobjects are entities
we cannot grasp in their entirety,
such as water, cats or styrofoam.
They occupy a higher-dimensional realm
that appears as an abstraction 
due to their scale,
ethereal nature
or temporal invisibility.


While degrowth
still autocorrects to regrowth,
the act of befriending hyperobjects
not only raises awareness
about the current distribution
of elements and conditions of life on earth
but also challenges us to redefine
our concept of planetary abundance.


Friend requests honor different beings
on different schedules within linear,
geological and universal time frames.
They are exchanges with hyperobjects
on a transpersonal level.
Giving and receiving
becomes interchangeable.











BEFRIENDING HYPEROBJECTS
IS AN ONGOING
COLLABORATION BETWEEN
