Ascending from the Liquid Horizon focuses on the possibilities and potentials once proposed by speculative narratives about the future, and reflects on the realm that is currently emerging from the intersection of science, corporate interests, and ecology. Vast developments in technology, advancing hand in hand with rapid climate change, predict a situation far more complex than the current one, defined by an environment where technology levels nature and notions of the biological, natural and terrestrial need to be revised. The richly illustrated catalogue includes essays by Patrick Gyger, Bas Hendrikx, Kati Ilves, and Jaak Tomberg, as well as a short story by Nat Muller, designed by Ott Metusala.
Works by Sol Archer, Joey Holder, Katja Novitskova, Kristina Õllek, Norman Orro, Anni Puolakka & Jaakko Pallasvuo, Laura Põld, Nicholas Riis, Taavi Suisalu, Vello Vinn, Simon Wald-Lasowski, Guan Xiao.
