Back in October 2016 I covered Landfill Edition’s exhibition Mould Map 6: TERRAFORMERS for The Double Negative, Jaakko Pallasvuo’s Easy Rider was there in fragments, but has since been published in full. I recently talked to Pallasvuo about this work and his worries for the future.

It’s a very confusing time, and in some ways it feels like simply being human has become a fraught, contradictory and outmoded position. This is frightening because I can’t really see a good way out. Looking for solutions turns into thinking about the supernatural.

The review, Jaakko Pallasvuo’s Easy Rider Explores Supernatural Solutions to Real-World Problems, is now up on AIGA Eye on Design.
